The Design and Construction of Bush Lane House

Bush Lane House is unique in this country in two respects: its external structure is stainless steel and water filled. The building lies immediately above the projected route of the London Transport Fleet Line on a site later to be used for the construction of the new underground. This paper traces the development of the design and touches on some of the more interesting aspects of the structure: the foundations, the design and analysis of the 1attice; the nature of the stainless steel and its fabrication; the water cooling system anda brief account of the erection of the lattice.
