Chelmsford is green-lighted
Just trying to upload some comparison images... taking ages....
Konceptual: Lol, I was trying the same.
Temple farm is a bit like when I am assembling Ikea furniture. There is a lot more stuff in the illustration than in the finished product and I can't figure out what goes where :-D.
The far right residential buildings essentially remain but are cut to three rows and not four. Look at the pond for reference. The two big sets of blocks to the left go.
- printery (now a much smaller warehouse)
- maintenance building
- offices below printery
- indoor recreation
- sports pavilion
- office development smaller
- residential services (now offices)
- infirmary (maybe smaller allowance elsewhere)
It looks like the auditorium is remaining.
Accommodation looks roughly 1/4 of the original size (around 1200 residents and guests)
konceptual: It looks like offices (greenish blue buildings) move into "residential services" and one set of offices is removed. I think there might still be four rows of residential, the last building is just next to the lobby (it could be something else of course). Residential services would be kitchens right? (if I recall these were removed as part of the downsizing). Removing offices would make sense with reduced printing activities as I assume there must be some computer work involved in printing.
Auditorium would make sense for education of evangelizes. Could there possibly be a fee on the cards and then a system of "scholarships"?
We'll see bohm, it will all come out in the wash in the end. There will be loads they can remove. One very interesting point is that this confirms the removal of Britain as a printing branch. There is just a warehouse now. No printing. They might also have kept the football field in the bottom corner.
konceptual: that's a very good picture. you can really tell how many additional buildings there were in the original plan and how closely spaced they were. It looks like the left-most half of the project (non-residential) has been rotated, buildings have been removed and the warehouse/(printery?) could be a very slimmed down version (it is hard to see due to the perspective).
It is unthinkable they wont brag about the project later so it will be interesting to compare once more detailed plans become available. Judging from the existing construction work under way I bet the project was halted and already completed/approved plans were re-written; I would be interested if someone with experience in construction had an opinion.
