Astragal met up with a chap from Barton Willmore last week, and was amused to hear a tale for which the idiom 'more haste, less speed' may have been penned. Currently working in the Middle East, the architect was bafed when on a site visit he noticed a neat bit of arrow-shaped shuttering which was waiting for a nice dollop of concrete. When he asked what it was, the site manager pointed to the neat black North arrow on the architect's plan. 'The trouble is that a lot of these plans look like works of art and they make what they see, ' explained the architect.
