DescriptionPhoto taken from muddy ground on a raised section of land looking across to the construction of the Robert Boyle building. The building has its structural pillars up as well as some side panels. Several workers are on the top of this building. The mast of a tower crane rises above the top of it. On the upper section of the building, more pillars have been put in on the right hand side and there are short pillar stumps dotted around the edge with metal rods prodruding from them, ready for extension sections. On the near left hand side, there is a stairwell section which juts out from the main body of the building. A workman is walking down the top section of stairs. On the far left of this building and the photo, the side of Senate House is just visible. In the foreground, various scraps of construction materials are dotted around the ground. On the far right the branches of a large deciduous tree are jutting into the picture and in the background, trees, houses, office blocks and electricity pylons in Guildford town are visible.
