Discussion on Comparison of Energy Requirements for Building Materials and Structures by B.A. Haseltine

Mr. W. J. S. Gover (Redpath Dorrnan Long) : I would like firstly to express some surprise that, on the basis of one worked example and using estimated figures, Mr. Haseltine should come up with so sweeping a statement as 'a steel frame uses considerably more energy than a concrete one'. However, I do not think it serves any useful purpose here to become involved in long arguments about the numbers. Suffice it to say that I and my colleagues in the structural steel industry have considerable reservations about the figures used.
