NCC One Angel

Novum was pleased to work alongside architect BDP on the glass gridshell rooflight 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. The structure used 73 glass panels and utilised our Block Knoten system. It was awarded the RIBA East Midland Award in 2018 following its 2017 completion.
