The President and a number of his Council colleagues will be meeting holders of the
Institution's Technician Certificate who are resident in the London area at an informal
reception to be held at the Institution on Wednesday 12 September at 6.0 pm. All holders of the Certificate are cordially invited to attend; those from other parts of
the country who have not been advised of the arrangements but who will be in London
on 12 September are assured of a warm welcome. The President looks forward to discussing with those attending, the future of technician engineers within the Institution.
The task of checking the work of another structural engineer is becoming an increasingly frequent one for members of the Institution. It is a trend to be welcomed but the professional responsibility of an engineer in such checking cannot be over-emphasized.
Just as the structure of the Sydney Opera House is unique in its shape and overall complexity, so are the glass walls which enclose the building. Many of the problems encountered in the design and construction of the walls were entirely without precedent, and had therefore to be solved from first principles.
