The Design of Two buildings with Suspended Structures in High Yield Steel

This paper describes the design of two high point office blocks in which the floors are suspended from steelwork cantilever systems supported on the central concrete cores. Particular reference is made to the structural steelwork, of which the major part is fabricated from high yield stress steel to BS 968, and the measures taken to control the quality of the material.
