    The new block is only 5 storeys at the front and 3 at the back, (see artist's impression below of how it will look).

    Great info Howie. I think i've mentioned before, I watched that tallest building being built in 1970/71 from our tenement back veranda which was a stones throw away. There's a pic on my site taken from a veranda lower down the square where you can see the 2 tysons cranes. the static T shaped one and the one with the moving jib. St. Annes church, St Anne street is captured on it to just before its demolition.

    What is it with building having an overhanging bit ?

    I saw the Beetham tower in Mancland the other week and thought it looks so silly. There's a few in our fair city too

    Not all structures with a built in overhang are silly though as the pic on the left proves.

    Byrom Street cladding project
    18 May 2009

    The cladding project at Byrom Street to upgrade the external facia of the James Parsons building and the ten storey tower will commence on Tuesday 26 May.



    The aluminium cladding system will make the buildings watertight and will complement the new buildings completed and planned for the Byrom Street campus.

    The cladding will overlap the existing external walls so that staff and students are not overly disrupted throughout the installation.

    The first two weeks on site will be concentrated on site set-up by the appointed contractors D & B Facades - with the cladding process to follow from mid-June.

    Any queries about the project should be forwarded to Tracey Price, Director of Campus Developments, at t.a.price@ljmu.ac.uk or Colin Davies, Director of Capital Projects, at c.g.davies@ljmu.ac.uk

    Improved floor space without increasing the footprint I'd guess.

    I don't think we'll get anything remembering David Moores in the city.
