2 Tate Gallery of Modern Art, London, 130M

Conversion of George Gilbert Scott's Bankside power station on the south bank of the Thames into the Tate Gallery's biggest exhibition space is running to time and budget, according to Tate Gallery project officer Adrian Hardwick.

Glazing of the steel framed 'light beam' which will channel natural light into the building through the roof is almost complete after work on the steel frame finished in September. The whole building is expected to be completely watertight within weeks, and internal building and mechanical and electrical work is taking over as the construction programme moves towards its July 1999 completion stage. After July work will concentrate on the installation of gallery exhibits ahead of the opening in 2000.
