Yup, I work in the construction industry, see loads of these. They're all built as cheaply as possible, as quickly as possible. Especially those in the last three years - everyone knew labour was done for and as such they were rushing through projects at a rate of knots to secure public service funding for the projects before the condems came into power and cut it. Most of these projects look hideous!zebidee said:I never understand the current obsession for covering metal structures with wooden cladding and painting the concrete parts random pastel colours (besides the car park, has anyone seen any new schools built lately?) It looks hideous to me.
Some look good though, although no schools. Newcastle under Lyme college is a fantastic looking building:
Also this, I can't hotlink to it sadly:
Like most buildings it started off looking like the station car park or tipping street's new offices -
