An important activiv for the structural engineers in Scotland in recent years has been the refurbishment of tenement property. Significant structural problems have been encountered, and in 1984 the Scottish Branch of the Institution held a 1-day symposium to discuss these problems. The contributions to this symposium were written up and made available to Branch members and other interested parties.

Steel frame structures in New Zealand-not so very rare!
Mr Charles Clifton of the NZ Heavy Engineering Research Association (HERA) writing from Auckland, is concerned to rectify a misleading impression which he feels has been given regarding structural steelwork in New Zealand in The Structural Engineer of 18 October last:
The report on the 1988 Presidential tour was both interesting and informative and, as a founding committee member of the New Zealand Structural Engineering Society (SESOC), I look forward to close links being forged and maintained between SESOC and IStructE.
The recently announced Structural Brickwork Awards are the 4th since their inception by the Brick Development Association in 1982, and a few observations are timely regarding lessons learnt from the awards and perceptible trends to be seen in structural brick design. The intention of the award scheme was to encourage the use of
brickwork as a primary structural material - hardly a new concept in 1982 but lacking focus. They have been an undoubted success, and the changes in design and construction techniques over the last few years are significant. There is far more widespread awareness of the behaviour of brickwork under stress, and some masonry design now forms part of many more university engineering courses. This was less usual in 1982. A high attendance at the CPD courses run jointly by the Institution and the BDA points in the same direction.
