Computers and programs can be wonderful. Their misuse, however, can have enormously distressing consequences that may not be detected for years, and even then may not be fully realised. Please consider the following incidents, of which I have personal knowledge.
Miss Margaret Law (Ove Arup): I should like to comment on the fire engineering design for this building, since the structure under discussion does not have any fire cladding. It might seem surprising that a theatre holding 750 people which has no structural fire protection at all was deemed acceptable. In our development of the fire safety measures for the Royal Exchange Theatre, we adopted a design approach to fire safety, by setting out our objectives explicitly, rather than trying to meet the letter of the building regulations. For example, it was by no means clear whether the
theatre or the Great Hall should be defined as the 'building' for the purposes of the regulations.
The Technician Education Council was established in 1973, but only now are its aims being understood and appreciated. This paper reviews the general patterns set by the Council and the particular programmes available for those seeking Associate-Membership of the Institution. It discusses entry requirements, activities of the technician, recent developments, and indicates the degree of flexibility available within the system for those colleges who strive realistically to meet the needs of industry and the ambitions of students.
