The brief included a 200 seat auditorium, seminar rooms, conference room and a library / resource centre with both print - and electronic media. Other facilities include three offices, kitchen and ablution facilities. The building was to be low-maintenance both externally and internally, and the budget was very limited. An important part of the brief was to provide for the possible future expansion of the building on the site. Tinted rockface concrete blocks were used externally and plain smooth-face concrete blocks internally.
