NHBC engineers are having increasingly frequent contacts with members of the Institution. This paper gives background information on NHBC, explains what it seeks to achieve within the limits of its ten year structural warranty scheme and shows how its technical requirements, particularly those for foundations, have developed from the experience of the last ten years. D.A. Chapman, R.E. Dyce and M.J.V. Powell
So! this is the first issue of The Structural Engineer in its new form; we rather like the look of it. The concept of separating out the Research and Development papers to provide material for an optional quarterly seems an effective way of recognising the fairly numerous and vociferous complaints from those who do not wish to read them in the Journal, but at the same time continuing what is an essential part of the activities of the Institution. It will be extremely interesting to see, when things have settled down, how many members opt to receive these four R and D issues which will be extra to the twelve normal monthly issues each year.
