The Steel Construction Institute is an independent, member based organisation, which was founded in 1986 to develop and promote the efficient use of steel in construction.
Ladies and gentlemen, fellow members of the Institution of Structural Engineers, I want this evening to consider some simple questions -why do we choose to be engineers? Why structural engineers? Why members of this institution? These are very intriguing questions and I suspect that there are no simple answers, but I also suspect that most members would agree on some basic criteria. I want particularly to address my remarks to the ordinary member, whether she or he be in Huddersfield or Hong Kong, Southampton
or Sydney, Delhi or Durban, Limerick or Lagos.
Mr D. W. Wood (Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners)
I wish to concentrate on two major areas. First, would the CDM Regulations have made a major impact on how you proceeded? Secondly, you said that the design evolved and then you implemented the changes. Can you explain the magnitude of the changes? Did you rip things out completely and start again or were they minor changes?
