Construction starts on Alsop's cricket pavilion

The 4,000m² Carnegie Pavilion will combined a teaching facility for Leeds Metropolitan University with media and hospitality space.
The scheme is scheduled for completion in May 2010, after going on hold for a brief period following stage E.
The pavilion’s 16-month construction period is now underway. Planning approval for the project was received in September last year.
The pavilion features five floors, and is connected to the green spaces around the building. Further plans include an upgrade of player facilities, such as changing and treatment rooms, and replacement spectator seating, new executive boxes and associated facilities.
It is located at the home of Yorkshire Country Cricket Club.
