Avondale were also employed to construct an exemplar welfare facility within the building. Timber doors recovered from the strip out were repurposed to construct a timber wall and canteen furniture. With the help of design students from University of East London, recovered light diffusers were repurposed to form ‘lighting clouds’ above the ‘door tables’ and ‘door benches’ also.
