The Structural Engineer in a Multidisciplinary Practice

The authors have, for 'many years, been involved in leading multidisciplinary engineering groups, working on the design of buildings with other firms of architects and quantity surveyors. This paper reviews the experience gained by examining the different stages of the design process and commenting on the lessons learned by working in this way. This review is illustrated by referring to some relevant projects. The paper concludes by suggesting that much can be done to encourage effective interdisciplinary collaboration by means of training and by improving the ways in which the 'normal duties' of the building design professions relate to each other. J.N. Martin, R.F. Emmerson and J.S.A. Berry
