Building Currently being Re-Cladded!!

Just thought I would post some news that the building which sits next to Park Lane College over the road from Marlborough street is currently being recladded with blue solar panels very similar the the cladding on the C.I.S tower in Manchester. I will try and take a pic of them tomorrow as I have my camera with me now.
About a third of the left handside currently has the panels on it and it's looking pretty good.

Im not sure if it's part of the college or not. It's the building with wooden panels on one side facing the car park. The side facing the road that used to have greyish panels on it is being replaced.

oh yeah its part of the college i go there. The greyish panels were solar panels too, they have just faded quite a bit since it was built so they are probably replacing them.

The new ones certainly look better than the grey ones. They brighten the building up quite abit. Do you know if they are planning to relace the wooden panels on the side? They look pretty faded aswell.
