The paper discusses briefly the various schemes that were considered for the construction of a 326-ft-high office tower which forms the main element of the building complex at ‘Drapers Gardens and describes in detail the main features of the solution adopted. W.W. Frischmann, G.S. Brown and S.S. Prabhu
Mr. E.C. Edge (Engineering Analysis Section, the Marconi Company Limited) writes: 'On page 255 the first sentence in the second paragraph in the second column reads, " The logarithmic decrement of the oscillations was only 1.5 per cent." It is unusual to describe the logarithmic decrement as a percentage.'
This paper describes the design and construction stages of a precast concrete multi-storey factory extension to accommodate nylon-spinning plant and associated ancillary services. The unusually heavy loading conditions on the precast framework and the flexibility required for differing types of plant called for a very careful consideration under extremely tight programme requirements. The paper shows how this task was met by all concerned in the project and illustrates the speed at which non-standard building construction can proceed with objective planning and teamwork. P.B. Edwards and W.J. Prylinski
