The original concept of the building was very simple – the repetition of a single structural bay (20.6m by 20.6m) square steel structural unit capable of expansion in a multi-cellular way. This concept allowed us to raise three existing bays, thus creating office accommodation over two stories and organized around three atria. Due to the cruciform column design, this was achieved without interfering with the adjoining bays.

The East and South coasts of Sri Lanka were totally devastated with 40,000 human casualities in addition to the colossal damage caused to the road network, bridges, harbours, schools etc.
