When i was still in glass when asked i would say it will be closed when i get finished but when the guy puts the door it it will sometimes be open.

I had a T-Shirt i wore on site I had printed in the Candleriggs ... FUNNY CNUT .... I heard it that often ... Most of the time i had no clue what i was working on apart from it needed windows.

As long as it looks better than the concrete monstrosity they pulled down I will be quite happy. Even better would be some mirrored glass for some new angles for traffic cone shots

Point is Norrie that wasn't a secret. They didn't demolish that site to leave it and the planning was granted in late 2011. And guess what they needed to demolish it before construction started surprise surprise.

Hi Ally_M, yes that was a terrible looking building

Must check the next time I am at the site, if there is an artists impression of the new building

I think it is much higher that the previous building was

cant remember what it was but I am sure as soon as the scaffold goes up we will all know
