A Twenty-storey Office Block in Nigeria founded on Loose Sand. Discussion on the paper by A. S. Grimes BSc MlStructE MICE and W. G. Cantlay BSc MlStructE MICE

Mr. T. D. Shephard (Member) said that, at about the same time as the building described by the authors had been under construction, his firm had been concerned in the design of a 16-storey office building for the Electricity Corporation of Nigeria, to be erected on a site between the Marina and Broad Street, jointly occupied at that time by the Public Works Department, the Electricity Corporation of Nigeria (ECN) and the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA). On the same site at about the same time the NPA had intended building a new six-storey office building.
