Concrete in its legal aspect

In presenting this paper one is beset with certain difficulties. There is no statute law which is specially applicable to the subject in hand, and of reported cases relating specially to concrete there are none. Nevertheless, it has occurred to me that there are certain aspects of the law relating to building and engineering contracts which may be of interest to members of this Institute, and I am indebted to your Council for giving me this opportunity of setting them before you. I hope to draw attention to a few considerations which may properly be kept in view by the parties to a contract which involves the use of concrete or reinforced concrete. W Valentine Ball
