New photos of Cohen Quad

A quick visit to Walton Street this morning to take some photographs of the progress at Cohen Quad.

It’s looking fantastic – the basement and ground floor are finished and the first floor is being constructed at the moment.  Spirits are high on site and all is proceeding according to plan.

A Cohen Quad fact: 14,200 tons of earth were removed during the excavation and foundation-laying of the site.  That’s 710 lorry-loads!

The first floor is now going up.  The basement area can be seen below.

The 1913 facade still towers above everything else; not for long though, as the walls around it are going up fast.

Entrance to the site; the proposed completion date is currently right on schedule.
