The ground floor is meticulously designed to ensure convenient and safe access for both vehicles and pedestrians. Featuring a covered drive and walkway, it separates vehicular and pedestrian traffic, reducing the risk of collisions. The ground floor houses the reception, canteen, and service access areas, with one main lift and two staircases providing access to the upper floors.

On the first floor, three lecture rooms, IT support facilities, the server room, and other amenities can be found, along with inspiring open ponder areas and a meeting room with a furniture store. The second floor houses four additional lecture rooms, meeting rooms, and a webcast studio. The roof level serves as a covered technical area, providing shade and cooling for the lower floors.
