The speed with which memory fades is a fact of life that never ceases to surprise me. What follows is therefore a recollection that may or may not be wholly accurate! It now seems as though the Institution has always been constituted in its present form, but it is less than 9 years since a Development Plan was published (The Structural Engineer, June 1984) which fundamentally altered the form of the Institution.

<h4>Be Prepared</h4>

Be Prepared

While good structural design and site experience are prerequisites for success at the Part 3 examination of the Institution, there can be little doubt that attendance at a suitable preparatory course is of considerable help to candidates in improving their prospects of passing. Such courses are available in most branch areas throughout the country, frequently organised with the support and participation of local branch members. For some years members of the North Thames Branch have been actively involved in passing on their structural engineering knowhow to candidates preparing for the Part 3 examination. C. Davies

Surviving as a Single Practicioner

Whether or not one’s business survives depends on many factors. The extent of personal financial commitments will obviously be significant. This feature has been prepared without reference to fee income and concentrates on practical considerations. It is hoped that it may be of help to those contemplating setting up on their own. E.J.

<h4>City Engineer of London</h4>

City Engineer of London

Historical background The City Corporation celebrated 1989 as the 800th year of the recorded Mayoralty, but it was not until the Great Fire of 1666 that they looked for ‘some skilful citizen, experienced in dealing with fires’ to help avoid a similar disaster. From this beginning, sprang the District Surveyor service for London and the City Offices of Surveyor, Engineer, and Architect. L.W.E. Groome
