The paper discusses the structural survey, appraisal, and rehabilitation of a superb example of Victorian engineering architecture. It describes the phasing of a very extensive survey of one of the earliest framed structures and gives details of surveying such structural elements as cast-iron columns, beams, masonry jack-arch floors, timber piles, etc. The purpose of thesurvey was to establish the viability of refurbishment. Despite age, hard usage, neglect, bomb damage, and vandalisation, the survey found this robust structure was basically structurally healthy but badly needed attention. Details of remedial measures are given and the proven success, of a trial run is described. G. Parkinson and W.G. Curtin

Mention is also made of the proposals and initial design work connected with the refurbishment of the southern end of Block C with which the authors’ practice is currently involved. The paper describes the refurbishment of the structure to the Albert Dock warehouses and the Dock Traffic Office in separate sections. Treatments to the foundations and roofs are described, together with a description of the method used to repair the brickwork.

Settlement and liability Mr J. A. Tanner wrote to us in July regarding liability when an engineer is consulted about remedial measures for settlement within a row of terrace houses, which may be owned individually or by one owner. His questions have brought letters from several readers. Mr E. J. Skilton of Enfield, Middlesex, writes: I believe there is no ‘correct’ solution but engineers in such situations should act with a combination of sound judgment and technical skill guided by both social and moral awareness.
