The building facades portrays clean ?clinical? look with aluminium composite material. Buildings are interconnected via glass and composite panel covered walkway. The inviting arches and embellishments incorporated at the Administration Building emulate the signatory Arches at the Newcastle University in the UK to mark its presence in the Malaysian campus.

A green canopy landscape concept is incorporated in the development to blend the buildings with its natural environment.
