A local explore in my home town. The Hilton Hotel construction site and is in full operation, making it even more fun!

There isn't anything that I can find on the internet about people being on this site, and I cant see why. This site is so impressive. It boasts 3 blocks which are up to 13 storeys high. Details of the build are:

"The landmark scheme designed by Cube in association with White Ink Architects, consists of a 13-storey 172-bedroom 4-star full brand Hilton Hotel with 14 exclusive residential apartments above, in addition to an 8-storey 120-bedroom Hampton by Hilton and 45 apartments with a 224-space, 3-storey deep, underground car park and associated landscaping. Work is scheduled to complete in Summer 2015.

Block A 172 bedroom 4 star Hilton with 14 residential flats above
Block B 120 bedroom Hampton by Hilton
Block C 45 penthouse apartments with 224 space underground car park and landscaping"

This information has been taken directly from the contractors website. (http://www.mcaleer-rushe.co.uk/proje...t-bournemouth/)

Anyway, onto the photos...

Looking at block A and the crane:

(oops, you're a bit wonky)

The view from the 11th storey of block A (on the top of the middle part):

(what is the rule of thirds?)

On storey 13 (right on the end of block A):

(On reflection this image would have been far superior using flash)

That was the whole reason I didn't use flash in the first place; I probably should have cleared that up before I sounded like a moron :banghead

I think it was me being stupid and being used to other formats of linking in images more than the fault of the forum. Good job guys :thumb

Pictures look awesome, loving the view of Lower Gardens and the balloon. Are you planning on going again? I'm up for checking that site out.

I haven't got an explore of it planned. Access isn't hard and there seems to be nobody there at night (except for Saturdays). The only worrying thing is that there have been lights on in the middle block (which now seems to be complete) and the gas also seemed to be on, we thought there could potentially be workers staying there. The block which we explored also seems to be progressing very quickly. If you need any information you can always give me a message.

It looks nicer from up there than it does on the floor :D
Still have more posts to make before they give me permissions for private messages. Moved to Bournemouth in September (first year of uni here), ever want to go exploring around Dorset then let me know.
