Barriers and regulation. In June 1979, Mr. J. D. Peacock questioned the need for vehicle barriers at internal boundaries of limited level difference in car parks, accompanying his letter with correspondence from DOE which left no doubt that that establishment considers that there is. Our speculation on the likely outcome of a joint submission to DOE under Section 67 of the Public Health Act drew from Mr. Turner (September 1979) the point to which Mr. Peacock now responds. He writes: I should like to thank Mr. Tanner who has made the point that local authorities have a tendency to apply regulations because they are 'written' but without knowing the reason for them, and sometimes, knowing the reason, will (despite considering the regulation to be unnecessary in the particular circumstances) still insist on compliance.

Presidential Address. The Contractor's Place

Presidential Address. The Contractor's Place

I am very conscious of the great honour that you have accorded me in installing me as President of the Institution of Structural Engineers for the year 79-80. Many distinguished men have preceded me in this office in the 71 years' history of the Institution and, if l cannot match the oratory of some of my recent predecessors, I shall at least try to keep any shortcoming as inconspicuous as possible. J.A. Derrington

Open Discussion Learn to Live Without CP 114 by D.D. Matthews

Open Discussion Learn to Live Without CP 114 by D.D. Matthews

In a previous open discussion at the Institution in January 1977 on the topic 'Towards a European Code for concrete - can concise Codes be compreshensible and comprehensive?', a wide range of opinion was expressed on the requirements for an ideal design Code. Re-reading the discussion leads me to the conclusion that, if as many views as possible are to be accommodated so that the Code can properly claim to be a consensus document, conciseness becomes almost an impossibility.

Project Management of Construction with Respect to Process Industries - at Home and Abroad

Project Management of Construction with Respect to Process Industries - at Home and Abroad

On the basis of their recent experience, particularly with a very large contract for a chemical complex situated on the North African coast and currently nearing completion, the authors compare and contrast project management activity abroad with that at home. In so doing, the term 'construction' is taken in its widest context. C.J. Liddle and A.J. Wallace
