As early as 1902 the present writer had realised that there was a scope for an Institution of Structural Engineers, which, under the aegis of the Institution of Civil
Engineers, would do for specialised structural work, what the Institution of Mechanical
Engineers, and the Institution of Electrical Engineers had done in their respective spheres.

The British Standard Specification for Portland cement was first issued in 1904 by
the Engineering Standards Committee (now the British Engineering Standards Association, incorporated in 1918), a body, as its name implies, entrusted with the framing of engineering standards of all kinds, and supported by all the chief Engineering Institutions of this country. This specification was drawn up by a representative committee, 25 in number, consisting of engineers, contractors and cement manufacturers, etc., under the chairmanship of the late Sir William Mathews, the well-known dock and harbour engineer.
Papers are to be read dealing with the metallurgical and electrical industries, aeronautics, &C., and excursions made to the "Usine de Gennevilliers de L’Union d’Electricitk,” to the “Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers,” and to the Eiffel Tower, &C.
