The relative size and growth of the building industries in France and the United Kingdom are compared in the context of a wider comparison between the two countries. The background and training of administrators, engineers and architects is discussed in relation to the dominant role of government in the French industry and to the legal and contractual framework.

An investigation is made of the feasibility of using a top connecting beam to stiffen a pair of coupled shear walls supported on elastic foundations. By basing the analysis on the continuous connection technique a closed solution to the problem is achieved. A numerical example illustrates the increase of structural efficiency which may be achieved for a pair of coupled shear walls situated on deformable foundations.
