THE building for which, at the time of writing, tenders are being called, is the new office in Christchurch, NZ., of the State Fire and Accident Insurance Department. The structural design was carried out along the lines which Mr. Norman Gregory has described in an article published in The Structural Engineer of August, 1931, and it is hoped that what follows may be of some value as a practical example of this method of design.

It will later be evident that the subject has been viewed from the experience acquired principally in the past ten years in building fifty or sixty bridges and applies to spans up to and including about 120 ft.

The assessment suggested in these tables is an endeavour to crystallise the general ideas on which the writer has found practical designers to have worked in the past, and he has attempted to expand them on the basis of the L.C.C. Code of Practice in the hope that they will give some stimulus to discussion on the part of those designers who have to sort out the rather elaborate but necessary specification of restraints given in the Code, and award them to suitable construction.
