Last month we published the first response we have had on design checking from an engineer working with a commercial firm engaged in 'design and build' activities. In it Mr. Ely commented on problems inherent in the arrangement where consulting engineers scrutinize design on behalf of an authority. We now have a letter from an engineer in the latter capacity. Mr. R. E. Brand comments: This letter is in response to your article in the April issue of The Structural Engineer. For the past two years, I have been responsible, through my firm-E.A.R. Sheppard Consultants-for the checking of structural designs and site supervision all on behalf of the Borough Engineer, Eastbourne. Verulam
