    The two shown appear to have been purpose-built. In my experience, this was unusual. The only ones I ever knew were converted from existing shops or offices.

    Although they were often housed in existing buildings, the prefabricated ones seem to have been built to a standard design, as the one in Leicester city centre was the same as this building.

    That truly is dreadful (but not at all surprising) news - they should have reused the building.
