Civil Engineering Works for the new Plate Glass Works for Pilkington Brothers Limited, St. Helens

A new float glass plant has been constructed inside the boundaries of the Cowley Hill Works of Pilkington Brothers Limited, St. Helens. The site of the plant was extremely varied due both to the natural topography and geology and to the man-made obstructions of a very large industrial tip and massive foundations for an old process. J.D. Harris and A.E. Johnson
