This paper describes a practical training programme carried out by second-year students at the Nanyang Technological Institute, Singapore, which involved the full-scale Construction of a reinforced concrete cantilever-roof grandstand. The objective of this project was to give students direct experience in civil engineering construction and to develop both technical and management skills, which would serve as a foundation for their formal courses in design and construction in the following years.
R. Hulse, M.K. Hurst and Professor W.H. Mosley
Engineers are for ever complaining about their lack of status and the low regard in which society holds those whom we refer to as ‘engineers’. In our opinion, this means corporate and noncorporate members of one of the recognised bodies, such as the Structurals.
Mr M. D. Japes (Director of Engineering, British Waterways Board): Bearing in mind that the design and construction techniques were so innovative, if it was required to repeat the construction, are there any aspects that Mr Simpson would now change, either in the design or in the construction techniques?
