The building is an asset to the environment, now its life has been extended from a not so usable industrial space to a state of the art office complex.
The current occupants are, The Education Department, Building Department, Bursars Department, Garden Department, Hospitality Suite Accounts Department, Human Resources Department, IT Department, Main Reception and Staff Canteen.
