I'm not knocking concrete as a building material. It's just that limestone would have been far more amazing, and more cost effective in the long run. It wasn't just heritage activists wanting limestone for its aesthetic qualities, the construction consortium also advocated for limestone as it would be far more durable. Ferguson ignored construction industry experts to save a few bucks in the short term, and we'll all have to live with (and pay for) the sh*tty consequences in the long run, while he enjoys the near term political benefits of bringing the project in 'under budget and ahead of schedule'.
