:lol:

Sorry Buck, excuse the sketchy vocabulary of a man who is neither an architect nor a mother tongue english speaker!

I have no means to understand what's going on on those working sites.
I just go past them every day.

So, let's make a deal: I'll take the pictures without comments, you guys are welcome to explain or comment them.

This is what was going on today:



(I suppose this is serious piling... even the workers' jackets had the word PILING on them, so I can't be wrong!):cheers:

I believe so. Pilling started for that design in 2008, so it would have been hard to change anything after that point except maybe the cladding
