As announced in the March 1971 issue of The Structural Engineer (page 112) the Council awarded the 1971 Drury Medal to Mr. Peter Ellis, an Associate-Memberaged 24. The design submitted by Mr. Ellis was for an elevated tank for supplying water to an exhibition site. As well as the Drury Medal, Mr. Ellis receives a premium of £100.
In the January issue of The Structural Engineer, p. 28, there was a report on the damage to a 7-storey office block in Belfast caused by a bomb attack. This report has been interpreted by some engineers as an indictment against permanent wood-wool formwork, which is unfortunate.
Mr. J. S. Trentham: It was obvious that this job was going to be one of great interest from the very beginning although nobody envisaged that it would receive the Concrete Society Award for 1971.
