The Shortman Building used to be one of the smallest buildings in Lukinswood however the open ground around it allows views typical of that of much larger buildings. After constant mockery of the buildings stature and name the owners offered to rent the upper floors of their property to Maltons telecommunications services and a Transmitter was installed. After the transmitters installation the Shortman building became the second highest building in Lukinswood second only to Cunningham Tower.

Although the roof is relatively low the building offers an excellent viewing distance, it should be possible to get a better view by climbing the transmitter however no one has succeeded and many people only climb the transmitter to jump off.

Barricade Policy

The Shortman Building contains a phone mast and should be kept barricaded at EHB whenever possible.
