Laxton & Lockwood's Builders Price Book.
Price 7s. 6d. Kelly's Directories, Ltd.
Two well known builders price books have joined forces and now appear in a single volume. Doubtless the amalgamation of the two books in one volume will have enabled the
publishers to retain the best features of both, and provide a book which will be of the greatest value to all engaged in the practice of estimating for building work
THE re-building of Regent Street affords many interesting examples of steel construction. In many cases the irregularity of the site plan, the architectural designs to render the buildings artistic and attractive, and the internal arrangements desired by the owner, make it necessary to resort to considerable ingenuity in designing the steel framing, which has to carry the floors and the roof, the partition walls and some portion of outer walls as well.
In this year of Grace, 1925, there is a humorous aspect to an effort to show cause why concrete, with its 2,000 years’ history of strength and endurance, should not impose itself as a dead load on that sturdy infant of construction, the steel joist, which was only born in the 188O’s, but on the contrary that its ability to contribute to the mutual support should be recognised.
W. Basil Scott
