Discussion on Albert Dock - Structural Survey, Appraisal and Rehabilitataion. Restoration of Albert Dock by Mr. G. Parkinson, Dr. W.G. Curtin, Mr. J.A. Tallis, Mr. R.D. Taylor and Mr. T.J. Dishman

Mr R. Rumbold (F) (Chief Engineer, Merseyside Development Corporation): On behalf of the Development Corporation, I would like to thank and congratulate the authors of both papers. Their splendid accounts of the structural investigations and restoration works on the Albert Dock buildings record the very substantial contribution by structural engineers to one of the most significant steps in the regeneration of Liverpool’s waterfront. I thought that John Tallis was a little modest at the beginning of his address when he was describing the other works of desilting and dock gate construction; they were, in fact, also carried out on behalf of the Development Corporation by Ward, Ashcroft & Parkman.
