The University of Surrey is a medium-sized campus-based university, with over 8000 students, situated adjacent to, and within easy walking distance of, the town of Guildford, which is approximately half an hour from London by train. The university is now some 30 years old, having grown from Battersea College, and, while it retains some of its former characteristics (e.g. in relation to the practical relevance of its courses) it has come a long way in those years. Indeed, it is amongst the top cohort of institutions in terms of many of the traditional measures, such as research income and employment record. Surrey is traditionally within the top few universities for graduate employment and topped the employment league for all universities last year. Professor J.E. Harding, G.A.R. Parke, D.R. Griffiths and M.J. Ryall
As a learned society, our Institution deals with engineering competencies and avoids acting as a trade union. Personal rewards remain a private concern. But many bewildering changes triggered by the recession and our entry into the European Single Market justify looking at the marketplace as it affects our profession. We cannot count on the traditional continuity of jobs or even on being employed by companies run by other engineers. R.M. Amodia
This paper describes the design and construction of a carpark for the Council of the Borough of Crawley, W Sussex. The structure is not notable for any ground-breaking originality but, in the designers’opinion, it demonstrates ingenuity in exploiting material properties in the pursuit of the client's expressed wishes.
