Design and Construction of the Printing Works at Debden

THE general background and the way the design and construction was organised are described. The various concrete structures comprising the Printing Works and Canteen building, are then dealt with in turn. The considerations leading to the selection of structural forms are given briefly for most cases, followed by some of the more interesting aspects of the structural design and constructional methods. The vaper is divided into sections as follows: Introduction; Precast Retaining Wall; Work below Lower Ground Floor; Multistorey Section; The Upper Ground Floor; Main Production Hall; General Printing Hall; The Final Processing Hall; Canteen Building. Sir Howard Robertson, Ove Arup, R. S. Jenkins and H. F. Rosevear
