Mr. Chairman and Gentleman,- It gives me great pleasure to have the opportunity of reading this paper this evening. Although concrete, especially that reinforced with steel, is a most efficient constructional material, there is still room for an increased efficiency and a reduction in cost in the use of this material, particularly in a structure above the foundation level.
The building at Wood Street forms an excellent example of the problems besetting the structural engineer. The site is extremely cramped, surrounded on nearly all sides by
party walls, which have all had to be underpinned.
The formulae emplosed in the design of centrally loaded reinforced concrete columns
usually present no dificulty.
