The South-Eastern Counties Branch was established in 1985, along with three other branches, to cover the area previously served direct from Institution headquarters. It has, therefore, the double distinction of being both the youngest branch and the branch with the largest membership.
La Lumière is a seven-storey speculative office block development on the edge of London’s docklands. The aim of the design-and-build contract was to produce a building of high architectural merit, low energy consumption and good quality of construction at a modest cost, offering 10 OOOm² of lettable floor area. Rick Mather was chosen to be the architect by the developer, Calderford Ltd. The client appointed Hanscombe Associates to act as his Project Manager and quantity surveyor.

Restoration of the Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone allowed an interesting insight into how the building was altered and structurally weakened over the centuries. As a local authority funded project, extensive precontract surveying was carried out in an attempt to minimise unforeseen costs. Strengthening of floors to meet public-use loading led to the testing of a number of full-size secondary floor beams. This paper describes in general terms the restoration works and provides details of the testing and the results produced.
