The Structural Engineer is called upon from time to time to make a survey of a block of buildings that it is proposed to pull down to allow of rebuilding with a steel-framed structure. The greatest possible accuracy has to be observed, say to 1/4 inch in 100 ft. A 100 ft. standard steel tape must be used and before commencing it should be checked by the standard marked down on the North Terrace of Trafalgar Square. The exact difference should be noted as well as the temperature. Professor Henry Adams

Some Preliminary Factors Affecting the Design of Buildings for Industrial Purposes

Some Preliminary Factors Affecting the Design of Buildings for Industrial Purposes

Whilst preparing the draft of this paper I came across, in the columns of a professional journal, an earnest plea that the designer should "learn the trade practically so as to get into the mind of the client" and, further, that "he should impress upon the people for whom the building is being designed that planning 1s the essential."
