THE paper gives a brief outline of the history, development, design considerations and construction of the Hydrodynamic Laboratory designed and built by the Ministry of Works for the National Physical Laboratory. Broadly, the new laboratory incorporates a main waterway with its carriage rails, wavemakers, beaches, trimming docks and assembly
area and, also, separate manoeuvring and storage tanks, including the special buildings housing them. Associated with the tanks are the wax model shop, fitting shop, machine shop, woodworking shop, boiler house, offices and canteen.

IN 1953 as part of the general development of London’s airports and after careful investigation, including a public enquiry, the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation decided in principle to develop a new airport at Gatwick. The increase in air traffic in the London area was such it was estimated that by the summer of 1958 it would be necessary for the new airport to be in operation. In August 1955, Messrs. Frederick S. Snow & Partners were appointed as Consulting and Co-ordinating Engineers for the whole of the work comprising the development of Gatwick Airport.
