To be built on Gulson Road just outside the city centre, the 14,000m2 building will have a sedum roof and photovoltaic panels in its facade. Construction by Balfour Beatty will be completed in May 2011.

I rather like the 80' sci-fi retro look.
Construction continues apace.




The main building is a cleared and flattened area of ground.

I've just realised that the view in the first picture is only possible with the demolition of the pub in the second.
Stig, here's the planning app:

I took a fews images from the design statement:



There is also a decorating centre behind the tyre place as well. No one will miss that either.

With that plot of land plus the site of the Gulson clinic behind it should give the uni enough land for another large building.
The uni are goin to try to get rid of that tyre place.

Look at 10 years plus.
I think the pub is going. The view in the second render is only possible with the removal of the pub in the first. Or is it just me.
Some of the panelling is starting to go on.
