Third replacement will be number four, since you had to have a set for it to be replaced in the first place
I'd guess that all involved are under various Non-disclosure Agreements (I'm not involved so not under an NDA) so that only the official line is heard.Funny we dont hear about it for four months but must have been solved as theyve started brickwork and construction of the secondary structure.
This sounds like the column foundations sinking as the floor slabs were poured (which is the only significant volume of concrete in a steel-framed building like this, other than the ground floor slab, but that bears on the ground, not the frame). I suspect the tolerances for this buidling will be tighter than normal as it is a TV facility, so it may take account of the needs of studio camera dollies.According to three separate sources the steel frame began to move significantly and beyond its design tolerances while concrete was being poured on the site in late May.
This sort of thing is something that regularly crops up when building next to large bodies of water though isnt it. Bit hard to put into words but watertable at a depth that surveys didnt identify because the water from the body can find unexpected places to move into.

Despite any so called wobbles...building coninues at ITV...
But I don't get this security requirement. If you go to any of the major Hollywood studios you can go in for tours and wander around (albeit in a tour). Banks and major businesses also seem to manage to maintain security whilst having open and welcoming entrances. If the MC studios can have public access then why not the same for ITV. This is a prominent riverside position and they have faced the arse of the building towards it :bash:That's the idea. The building is there to hide and shield the production area from view and to a certain degree noise. There is a pedestrian security gate for staff to use to travel to and from MediaCity further up the quayside, but the main entrance is on the road, and again designed for security and privacy.
Indeed. Plus the facility will be very busy, and so unable to accommodate general tours.To protect the soaps storylines, same reason they stopped allowing tours while they were filming at their previous studio.
I don't think skit was suggesting it be open for people to walk round the set, he's saying the ENTRANCE is in the wrong place, and I agree.But to be fair this isn't exactly the same as the BBC buildings. It has as lot in the shape of the outside street set. They did all that years ago with tours with the Granada Studio tours and it wasn't making the money and as the episodes were to be more weekly then the filming schedule was increased and it wouldn't have worked with the public in the way. It works best for them to have a closed set
Exactly, I'm just concerned about how this will make the waterfront appear and the current plans make it look like a warehouse basically. All it would take is a nicer entrance and reception area for staff at the corner facing the bridge.I don't think skit was suggesting it be open for people to walk round the set, he's saying the ENTRANCE is in the wrong place, and I agree.
