Following on from some recent posts (9th July 2013) and (2nd June 2013). The finishing touches have been speeding along. The general exterior area down towards the eastern end of the building has been cleaned up and you will even see a small pond surrounded with planting located at the very eastern tip of the campus. The majority of the internal furnishings have been put in place, and all the Schools and Research Institutes have now moved into the building. The last remaining School, the School of Computing Science and Digital Media will take up residence on Monday 29th July 2013. Quite a number of the images below are of the open spaces including catering areas that look out in a southerly direction over the river Dee. In some of the exterior shots you will see quite an amount of bicycle parking facilities and some exterior benches and litter bins dotted around the campus. In a few other exterior shots you just may manage to see some packing creates sitting close to the windows from the School of Computing’s move. You will also notice quite a bit of signage to be seen at the entrances identifying the Schools in residence at the building.
Back towards the end of January 2013 I made the following post charting the photographic evolution of Riverside over the course of sixteen months. With the final elements of the build almost complete I will create another similar post in the near future with a tentative title of “Riverside East a Story in 2000 Pictures” again just highlighting its evolution which by then would be almost a two year period.
The first image in the set seen below was captured looking through a glass panel that is picking up the reflections of some trees, with the library tower clearly evident peering above the roof top of the main section of the building. Following on from that is a sign located in the plaza directly outside the main entrance of Riverside East.
