NCC One Angel

Novum was pleased to work alongside architect BDP on the glass gridshell roof and central atrium at the NCC Angel building in Northampton. The aim of the project was to regenerate a historically important quarter of the town with new headquarters and office building. The gridshell roof opens up the meeting area below and gives a modern airy feel to the space below. The structure used 73 glass panels and utilized our Block Knoten (BK) System. The project was awarded the RIBA East Midland Award in 2018.
