Correspondence on the Superstructure of Bangor District General Hospital by J.G. Roddick and F.C. Smith

Mr M. H. Rees (M): The authors have given us a pithy paper, outstanding as much, perhaps, for its readability and abstraction of the really interesting features of the project as for the signficance of those features which, for me, includes the following: -design rationale for shearhead -shearhead proof testing -flat-plate mat prefabrication -flat-plate omission of edge beams -rationale for services corridors Having just completed the design of a flat-slab structure in East Africa, presently implementing, I would draw your attention to certain similarities with, and differences from, Bangor Hospital, so as to illustrate the underlying concepts or conceptual divergences.
