The Structural Engineer, Volume 3, Issue 12, 1925
Every age brings its problems,; but the inevitable march of civilisation presents new phases to problems of great antiquity. Some problems of the present age are quite new, born of the conditions and requirements of modern times. Sir Charles T. Ruthen
This Society was founded in 1912 by The Royal Institute of British Architects, the Surveyors’ Institution and the Architectural Association for the benefit of employees of architects, surveyors, civil and structural engineers and allied professions, who are in receipt of sularies not exceeding £250 per annum, and who consequently come within the scope of the National Health Insurance Act.
IN our issue of October we published a description of the two beet sugar factories about to commence operations at Ipswich and Ely. Below we give particulars of a third which has just been erected at Kidderminster for the West Midland Sugar Co., Ltd., of which Lord Weir, Lord Invernairn, J.B. Talbot Crosbie, Esq., Cecil Brinton, Esq., and Mr. Westwood are the directors. Constructed and equipped by Messrs. Duncnn Stewart and Co., Ltd., London Road Ironworks, Glasgow, the new factory is a steel-framed structure, the contract for the supply and erection of the steel framework having been entrusted to Messrs. Braithwaite and Co. (Engineers), Ltd., Crown Bridge Works, West Bromwich. This factory is the second steel-framed beet sugar factory of all-British design and equipment to be erected in Great Britain or the Continent, and is also the second establishment on the programme of the corporation, which also includes four other factories to be built in the near future.
