The project is located in the old part of Limassol and is a listed building made up of two warehouses which were used for storage. The new format accommodates the laboratories of the Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science of the CUT. The exterior shell remained unchanged during the renovation, under the terms of the Department of Conservation Planning, while the interior has been transformed. The existing stone separation of the two warehouses two new levels, a ground floor and mezzanine were created
The foundations have been reinforced as has the existing masonry while the interior layout consists of a contemporary metal construction. All divisions of space have been made with high quality insulation materials.
