GSE has 20 ELA Premium modules with an extra width of 3 metres, as well as four at the standard width of 2.5 metres. They provide floor space of 420 m2 over two storeys connected by outer stairs and a platform. The facility contains offices, common rooms, changing rooms, sanitary areas and a first-aid room.
