It is difficult, when asked to write something about our work, to see how our modest residential projects could be of much interest to the structural engineer. One thinks of architects who work with tensile structures and retractable roofs for stadiums as having something of greater relevance to impart. However, I am informed that our work causes structural engineers considerable headaches.

Collapse of the Ramsgate Walkway

The collapse caused fatalities and injuries, and was the subject of a criminal prosecution. The collapse was caused by similar conceptual misunderstandings on the part of the designers and the independent checkers. The primary causes are explained and non-causative actions, omissions and events, which were put to the jury, are discussed. The principal issue before the jury was whether and under what circumstances a port operator is responsible for the mistakes of his engineering advisers and suppliers. Also, there was prolonged legal argument on the meaning of ‘reasonably practicable’ and ‘on whether ,design was part of the owner’s ‘undertaking’. J.C. Chapman

Work has been going on for many years to produce a ‘suite’ of EuroCodes; the first public airing of the documents that have been prepared so far is soon to take place. (See post.) The beginnings of a set of harmonised recommendations for the design of structures were born of cooperation between several international associations, then preparing, in various ways, their own drafts. The Joint Committee on Structural Safety (JCSS) brought together the work of CEB, CIB, and CECM commissions to draft a set of six volumes as follows:
