Default Colindale tall building

Just outside Colindale station, to the right, there is a new building being erected lol.

It seems to be being constructed entirely from Containers sellotaped together. I mean those sea containers.

Has anyone seen it. Is this normal construction? And how can it take so long?

Quite common now - I've seen home units made out of containers on
Trinity Buoy Wharf near East India and of course there's the Boxpark
shops at Shoreditch. They make quick shop and living spaces.

Maybe because it's going up as one building and it's big? These ones in
the links below at Trinity Buoy Wharf have been added to I think.

My kids go to school on the wharf at a small school called Faraday -
the man himself used to do experiments in the lighthouse and there's a
hut with some of his stuff to see.

But all they have to do is put one container on top of another and sellotape them together. How hard can it be, as the bishop said to the actress.
