Yep, sure looks professional. Totally “on brand”, presenting the University’s name in the best possible light. Or not.
On closer inspection, I think they could have fixed this, and still can. There is enough banner there to do it, they might just need to make 1 cut. The very right end is a separate piece, as is the very left end. So remove some or all of the right end, shuffle all the rest along so the it’s-not-a-logo is on a flat surface, and add the spare bit back in to fill the gap.
It’s probably only a hour’s work at most, as you can do it all from the top of the Folly. Just don’t attempt it on a windy day.
But hey, that might make it look good…
As Nic suggested to me last week, these builders clearly believe the assumption that no one can see them, due to the 2m fence around the site.
They must think it’s a +4 Cloak Of Invisibility(tm).
If they thought anyone was watching, they wouldn’t do things like spend hours walking around the site staring at the mud, occasionally kicking stones to see if they’re bolted down or not. (To date, he hasn’t found any bolted down — Ed)
What they don’t appear to know is that people in the surrounding buildings have a far superior Cloak Of Invisibility(tm), resulting in us being able to watch them, without them ever realising it.
They remind me of human implementations* of The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, with which I assume you are all familiar.
* Not 100% sure that’s the best word, but it’ll do for now. Suggestions on a postcard, please.

By my reckoning, if that digger lifts up its bucket at all, it’s going to fall straight into that hole. Well done (yet again) to the magnificent builders across the road!
Not a great photo, but the surface concrete skin has given way under the digger’s track as he has slowly dug out everything supporting him.
