There has been an army of contractors vans all day everyday in the last 2 weeks on the road next to players, they are throwing everything at getting it fitted as soon as possible. Sound systems have been going in today

When I went past last night at about 10.30 there were quite a few people in there doing stuff. Its certainly been done quick, when I went back a few weeks ago it was still its boarded up mess.

Has the design of Spacepad changed? I could have sworn the windows were in straight 'columns'.

Players was due to open on Friday night, I presume they managed it.

Im told the render on the concrete wasnt dry before the paint went on, the furniture only arrived on friday and the bar wasn't fully fitted even on friday evening!!

You have been busy today, so glad that there are still loads of things being built in these credit crunch times.

Just me that thinks the bays look a bit on the weak side? Not so much the bays them selves, more the connections to the main building. Moment connections to what looks like a plate projected from the face of a column?(Correct me if i'm wrong)

I wouldn't've liked to design those...
