I agree! the day KCB veered from the plans below is when mediocrity stepped in, so what did we guyz expect them to yield? Mediocrity


Hopefully some lessons from the construction of Britam and UAP in UpperHill will shape the near future.

KCB's 'spire' is not architectural. It is actually an antenna not a spire so the height is to roof top.
