The paper describes the construction of the former Queen Anne 's Mansions and outlines some of the legal encounters of its builder. A brief outline of the site investigation and its conclusions are given and the conditions around the boundary and how they were dealt with are described. The principles of the framing are explained and areas of particular complexity described. Extensive use was made of precast concrete for complex profiles and a brief description of some of the panels is given. A new technique for assembling stone panels is described together with details of the principle units embodying these techniques.
In this paper the author describes the development of a scheme to provide additional exhibition space at the Science Museum, South Kensington, London. The initial brief is discussed and the factors affecting the final design are illustrated. The special relationship between the engineer and architect is emphasised and attention is drawn to the particular construction problems encountered in alteration and rehabilitation schemes.
