Clifford Chance, a private equity firm, occupies the entire building.
HMA also designed the security control rooms for the complex that incorporates trading floors, fitness center conference center auditorium, staff restaurant and underground parking.
The building automation system monitors and controls the mechanical and electrical building systems and indoor air quality monitoring and control ensures a satisfactory environment for the occupants.

The security systems are integrated to enable interaction between devices. A high level of overall security is augmented with the incorporation of 23 high finish security turnstiles in the spacious lobby at ground level.
