As work continues at a steady pace, about 80% of the internal block work has now been completed. From the outside the external brickwork is now clearly visible from all elevations as it gradually rises up the building, using the same two brick colours as in the ELM and LMC (‘cheddar golden’ and ‘cheddar red’). A third colour, dark brown, is used on the zig-zag elevation behind the mosque dome where later this year the mosaic design will be installed.
