Foundations and Building Regulations submissions Whatever the aspect, the subject of Building Regulations submissions is one that elicits strong views and forthright language on the part of our correspondents. Mr J. T. O’Rourke has written, deploring the rigidity sometimes applied in dealing with the structural aspects of submissions. In his opinion, the refusal, by some engineers, to make simple engineering judgments in their appraisals detracts from the reputation of the profession and leads to lack of respect by other professions. He illustrates his point by reference to an example: The problem relates to a Building Regulation submission, and the consequent comments of the local authority engineer. (I should point out, at this stage, that I am employed by a local authority and check Building Regulations submissions myself. I have, therefore, no particular axe to grind in this direction.) Verulam
