The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe

The tendency towards standardisation, so marked to-day in all branches of engineering, can be usefully carried out only to a certain extent in structural engineering. In small structures, cost is saved if one is able to make use of standardised framework; butbeyond that, specialised design is an essential if efficiency is to be attained; and the larger the contract, the greater the need for the individual assessment of problems, and for seeking the most satisfactory solution.
