Colloquium. Design Recommendations for Multistorey and Underground Carparks

In May 1973 the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Highway Engineers, now the Institution of Highways and Transportation, held a conference in London on the subject of multistorey and underground carparks, where the emphasis was on design. The information presented at this conference was clearly of considerable value, and the two Institutions therefore appointed a Joint Committee to prepare comprehensive recommendations on design, using the conference proceedings as a starting point. The Committtee moved very quickly and, in December 1975, the Joint Report was published by the Institution of Structural Engineers on behalf of the two Institutions. Raymond Sharp
