It's a box but it's far from being boring.I like the different heights of the building's top.

Loads of pics taken friday by jrb. Demo work is coming along well.






Pouring concrete. Any ideas? Retaining wall?





Inside the tunnels. (plus the rain) Note the hole in the tunnel roof.





The real action.



















We have concrete!

I think we need some more pics. Lower site near the street has been cleared and now a secant piled wall is being built on top next to the canal and along the warehouse. Once its built the rest can be cleared and other works can take place.
Taken by Comdot today...


Taken on the 10th june by jrb ....

Today images..








I've got the high quality images. To me it looks like that washer thing has gone because they are have started taking down the rest of that wall, don't want it getting damaged. That grey stuff has a car on it.
