Our comments on sanctions-or rather that there were none-associated with errors or neglect of checking authorities (September 1975) have elicited a salutary riposte from Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd (F).
It is not the intention to add any improved information to that already written on the subject of multi-storey car park design over the last decade, but to record some of the interesting aspects of the design, both structural and otherwise, relating to Basildon's first multi-storey car park which was opened to the public on 6 November 1972.
This paper describes the general design procedure and construction techniques adopted for this extensive development in central London. The sub-structure work involving the construction of deep basements and the adoption of various design and constructional techniques are described. The results of strain gauge measuring procedures adopted in the foundations are discussed together with the approach to the foundation design.
