Tall Buildings - Problems in the Design and Construction as Affecting the Structural Engineer. Discussion on the Paper by Lt.-Colonel G. W. Kirkland, M.B.E. (Mil.), M.I.Struct.E., M.I.C.E.

Mr. J. A. DERRINGTON (Associate-Member) said that although the design of foundations for tall buildings had caused consulting engineers to think afresh, contractors’ engineers had not been inactive in designing and constructing plant which could be used for the installation of deep cylinder foundations, In particular, the type which could provide a shaft with an enlarged base at depths of 80 feet in London clay was noteworthy and he proposed to show a short colour film of this plant at work which he hoped would interest members.
