After months under wraps, the exterior of a new science and engineering building at the University of East Anglia (UEA) has been unveiled.
Scaffolding was recently removed from Building 60, as it will be known until its opening, at the campus to reveal the 25m flue extract chimney, designed to release exhaust air from the building.
It is coated in zinc shingles, which cut a striking figure and will also help to protect the building's exterior.
More than 7,000 shingles have been placed by hand to cover the flue and other areas of the building.
The construction company behind the project, R G Carter, says progress is also being made on the four-storey building's internal fit-out including laboratory installations.
