Research and How it is Applied

This feature describes in brief the role and responsibilities of researchers in the field of construction and how research results are utilised, particularly in British Codes of Practice. Also highlighted are certain important areas to be considered by researchers to ensure that research projects culminate in a successful conclusion. The author draws on his experience in the Building Research Establishment and his involvement with the structural use of timber and timber products. V. Enjily

<h4>Removal of Asbestos</h4>

Removal of Asbestos

One of the peculiarities of working in a plant engineering activity is that one’s day-to-day work does not necessarily follow one’s chosen discipline. My work was mainly concerned with controlling contractors on site (‘Resident Engineering’, as it were), ensuring compliance with terms of company orders and relevant statutory and company standards, safety aspects, and generally ensuring that everybody ended up happy... In my employment I had a number of ongoing interests, but the one of most concern (and the most time consuming) was that of asbestos removal. The following account of one particular job should be of interest to all engineers, especially those engaged in refurbishment works. L.J. Hopper

<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
