Burned down again. Tragic - how could it happen again?

Wierd one mate. I'd be tempted to consider that this [and the previous one] are the work of an arsonist. I've got absolutely no evidence to support that but it seems to convenient an option to ignore.

Ironic timing so soon after the 150th anniversary of the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh

I wonder if it started in the abc? It’s lower down...

Really, really sad. Imagine you’d worked on the restoration.

Had a sprinkler system but wasnt finished. That should have been the first thing finished and working.

Terrible loss.

I'm all for preservation of interesting buildings but surely when the cost of doing so is as high as this then the building has to go. There's no way we can plow a couple hundred million into rebuilding one place and not have the knock on result that basic care and maintenance on hundreds of other great buildings is neglected. With human life it is morally hard to make the call on preserving a few lives against the greater good but surely with buildings it's easier to be callus? Where's that new IBM debater to make the choice?

Good point about the use of the public purse to pay for these rebuilds. The public sector generally don't carry insurance.

Of course if it turns out to be the builders fault, or some other party with insurance, then they might have to stump up the cost, or do what so many other companies do these days when things get awkward, go into liquidation!

Student flats and a new Starbucks.

If this were London they'd have burned the student flats with the students at the windows.
