An Englishman's Home Was His Castle (Before Concrete Housing) ...

Imagine a site of 104 houses, with one contractor, 53 clients, and 105 channels of finance to pay the one contractor. All residents remain in their properties while the contractor underpins foundations and provides new external walls. These are some of the problems facing the structural engineer when dealing with the problems caused by having to repair PRC (precast reinforced concrete) housing that is now deteriorating. S.M. Craddy
