Still with Farrell, what is going on down at Marsham Street, where the Farrell/Bradman PFI consortium beat MacCormac/Lipton to provide the Home Office with its new HQ, replacing the notorious concrete towers? CABE was critical of the scheme, but will the government respond? The procurement route was established under the last Conservative government, but the built result will not be with us for years - apparently it will take nearly two years to demolish the towers. Will the new building be a symbol of Better Public Buildings, or will it just hark back to the bad old days? The jury is out, but if the project is to improve, it will need a bit more investment. Let's hope Jack Straw will make the case.
