The discussion on this paper was published in the September issue of The Structural Engineer (page 375). M. N. Esquillan has since written the following note in reply to Mr. J. Levy's question about the cost of formwork. M. Esquillan: 'Formwork and scaffolding complete for the whole roof from springing to springing cost as follows: Formwork 44 500m2 l 950 000 F
Scaffolding 3 650 OOO F
5 600 000 F
this gives the following cost per m2 of plan:
5 600 000 / 11 980 = 476 F
This are 1965 figures; today the cost would be about 15 per cent higher.
Mr. A. Butler: 'Mr. Huntley quoted a figure of £180 000 for the cost of the special equipment for handling the large precast units, which represents a little over 1 per cent of the total contract price. Presumably it represents a considerably higher percentage of the contract price for the large units. Nevertheless, it seems an extremely low figure.'
The Draft British Standard Code of Practice for Loading: Wind Loading, in accordance with the established procedure of the British Standards Institution, has been circulated for comment. These comments are now being considered by the Committee. The paper now presented is intended to explain the reasons and thinking behind the somewhat formal presentation and necessarily technical wording of the draft.
