The new SKF warehouse is a steel structure composed of girder, truss and tubular bracing systems. Metsec sections were used for the side cladding rails. The warehouse structure contains a 35 tonne overhead crane as well as a 10 tonne gable gantry crane.⁠ ⁠ A key feature of the project is the tubular posts supporting the office slab, as well as the tubular louvre support system which wraps around the building.⁠
