OK, I got it. I missed the bit underneath where it said download the pdf for a while.

Hmmn. Interesting. You can see the building has got a central atrium with a big curvy suspended glass roof. Nice feature. Shame the building steps down rather than flows down and the apartments aren't a bit bigger so you don't need a fold-down bed. But aw, who's asking. Thanks for the info.

One of the Spectrum cores. Thought this was for one of the 14 storey towers but it seems it's for one of the smaller blocks.

Salford Academy, Manchester

New 750 place 11-16 Academy with a specialisation in Business and Enterprise, sponsored by United Learning Trust. Formerly, the Canon Williamson High School.

The site is located in an area of severe social and economic deprivation which is badly in need of regeneration. The area is also part of an Education Action Zone and the existing school provides a number of initiatives to connect with the local community.

The design approach for the new Academy was to create a landmark building that would provide a beacon for learning. The building also needed to reflect the Christian and pastoral nature of the sponsor’s approach to education, by valuing the individual while engendering a sense of warmth and security.
The design of the building needed to convey the message that the school is a beacon of learning, is open and accessible and represents an investment in the community.

The building also needed to offer staff and pupils a warm and safe environment, a non-institutional image and environment and a place where individuals can develop and reach their full potential.

The design concept, which has been conceived to inspire the occupants, provides a high level of flexibility together with cutting edge ICT requirements.

The layout of the building is designed around a central street with the large spaces, hall and sports hall forming a protected courtyard from the surrounding housing estate.

"The layout of the building is designed around a central street with the large spaces, hall and sports hall forming a protected courtyard from the surrounding housing estate."

The courtyard needs to be 'protected' from the surrounding council estate?

Oh right of course it does, I remember them estates now, I've been out of the UK for too long.....

F***ing toad face will reject this aswell!

Green light for Reds

A NEW stadium for Salford City Reds rugby league club is likely to be approved by councillors tomorrow.

But Environment Secretary John Prescott will have to give final approval to the £130m development. He will also decide if there should be a public inquiry.

Town hall officers have recommended approval. The proposed 80-acre site is a former flood plain of the River Irwell between the M60, Manchester Ship Canal, and the A57 Liverpool Road at Barton.

The 20,000-seat stadium would have eight levels and a roof covering. Attached to it would be a 208-bed four-star hotel, a casino, museum, bars, and restaurants.

Surrounding it would be 230,000 square feet of non-food retail space. Together with the hotel and casino, it would generate funds to build the stadium and secure its viability.

Coaches

There would be 1,000 car parking spaces and a bay for 40 coaches.

Council officers have suggested restricting the use of the stadium to sporting events. They also want the developer to agree that 80 per cent of all construction and operational jobs created by the stadium should go to local people.

The council has received 67 letters objecting to the plan and 82 in favour, as well as a 273-name petition opposing the development and a 37-name one supporting it.

Many objectors are concerned about the need for more shops. They believe they could undermine struggling stores in Eccles.

Other concerns are increase in traffic noise, loss of greenspace; devaluation of property, fears of rowdy drunks, and light pollution from floodlights.

Supporters say the stadium would enhance the image of the city, help attract Metrolink, create jobs, and provide improved facilities for Salford Reds.

Only a stupid person within the Govenment would reject it. One it boost sporting for the UK and two the Govenment would make more from taxes.

I hope Salford City Reds do get the go ahead for the new stadium because The Willows at the moment isn't the best of stadiums to visit and it's in a bad area.

A long time ago I went to the 'Willows' night club in Salford. I can remember being a great cabaret lounge with decent turns and an abundance of tasty looking totty. At the time I didn't realize it was the social-club for the Salford 'Egg-Chasers'....the geezers looked like a right load of no-neck rough cunts. I'm glad I didn't try and trap-off with one of their birds...

I forgot to mention, will the new 'Willows' club have the same (older) no-neck rough cunts and the same totty (only with a lot of mileage on the clock)?
Rugby, what's the fucking point? All they do is grope each other and grab at their opponents bollocks....
