Discussion on Redevelopment of Queen Anne's Mansions by G. K. Montgomery-Smith

Mr. D. R. R. Dick (Past President): In 1940, when the Ministry of Works requisitioned Queen Anne's Mansions for the Admiralty, I was the structural engineer heading up the team resgonsible for maintenance in Central London. The maintenance surveyor asked me to go along there and give some guidance as to their structural soundness. I was therefore responsible for the figures that you quoted concerning floor loads and strengths-but I did not do them in kilonewtons!
