Discussion on The London Ark, Hammersmith by Mr. R.H. Jackson and Mr B. Leidner

Mr J. E. A. Tapsell (M), (Tapsell Wade & Partners) This is a very tantalising building, still 'shrouded in mystery'. The paper refers, in very general terms, to the steel structure, and I hope that the authors will be able to give more details about the actual steel frame. I am interested in the combined steel and concrete floor, the connections used between the floor beams and the steel columns, the stability bracing in the lift and stair towers, and a more detailed plan (if possible) of the stair and lift areas. I should like to know how the steel stanchions and bracing were clad.
