Some Unusual Structural Features in Recent Building Construction

Few buildings of any magnitude are completed without some feature of particular interest occurring during their construction. More often than not structural problems are dealt with and forgotten, without any record having been made of them. The author therefore hopes that, in presenting a few brief descriptions of buildings recently erected, a useful purpose may be served by recording some of these problems and the manner of dealing with them.
