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
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. J.A. Waller
The paper describes typical structural problems associated with work to party walls in the City of London. It is divided into two parts. The first covers general aspects of stability, lateral restraint, flues, fire escapes and foundations in relation to party walls; the second part gives n case history of the works to the boundaries and party walls in connection with the redevelopment of 55 Gracechurch Street during 1990-1992. The paper demonstrates the importance of carrying out a comprehensive programme of survey and exploratory works in advance in order to minimise problems during construction. A.J. Seymour
