Just some great images!

Just some great photos!

Not much for me to report right now – progress continues on site, but its been quite difficult to get around, not just because of the rain, but as so many areas are currently having floor screeds or stone paving laid, so access routes are restricted.

So instead I’m going to show a few images that are ‘during’ shots – phases of the building work that once completed will never look like this again, or may never even be visible to anyone:

First up (above), perfect circles cut into the brickwork and precisely aligned between the arches of the Lower Promenade, that will become part of the ventilation system. Secondly (below), the steel structure, seen from the inside, that forms the huge high level window from the Landscape Gallery looking out over Denmark Road.

And finally, a view of the South Promenade wall – the wall that used to be the exterior of the Gallery, but is now internal – with work ongoing to remove poor and damaged bricks ready for replacement with reclaimed bricks, and finally cleaning and repointing. The area of white wall at the far end used to be within a small outbuilding, demolished at the start of the project – this is where a new door will be opened up between the Promenade and the existing South Gallery.

Really looking forward to heading over to Manchester to see the Whitworth when it is completed. Excited at the prospect!
