The CHAIRMAN proposed a vote of thanks to the Author and invited discussion on the paper.
Dr. S. B. Hamilton, whom the Institution welcomes as President for the Session 1954-55, brings to his office a wide and varied experience in several spheres of structural engineering- in research, in education, and in the practical work of everyday engineering.
The subject largely deals with the constructional work below ground level for a heavy-type structure that has recently been erected in the City of London. Like so many buildings in this area, the site is extremely confined and is hemmed in on two of its flanks by property of a similar nature. The text is mainly devoted to the practical aspects of some of the more interesting foundation and underpinning problems that are peculiar to buildings in the densely built-up areas. In such projects working space is very limited and, due to this, all design considerations are inseparable from the constructional aspect.
