Albert Dock, Liverpool - Structural Survey, Appraisal and Rehabilitation

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

(His comments on the Campaign for Practical Codes of Practice require correction, although the article does not directly concern that Campaign-CPCP is not a campaign against the use of BS8110 [as he claims] but a campaign for the right of engineers to choose CP114 as an alternative if they prefer.) What follows is a response to the technical comments Dr. Beeby makes (numbered as in the original article). Mr. Beal

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.
