The project involved the construction of 4 concrete frames. One 9 storey frame, one 5 storey frame and 2 frames that where taken up to podium level.

The groundworks and drainage where carried out and co-ordinated with an archaeologist as some areas of the site had historical relevance.

The site itself ran along the river bank in the Bedford town centre and also backed on to the local council offices.
