Imposed loads for buildings Lawrence Hurst writes from London: MS Currie’s paper on the loading Code in the 16 February issue of The Structural Engineer prompts me to revert to a matter that was incongruous when the loads were in different Codes and now stands out even more as being inconsistent.
Background I will, by your leave, start with some recent history, which I think is worth putting on record - the formation of the Institution’s History Study Group, which celebrates its silver jubilee this month. B.L. Hurst
Mr B. P. Clancy (Past President) May I ask, have you any evidence as to how your father and his partners actually calculated their fees? We see expenditure, we see a small loss. They were obviously very impressive buildings with a good standard of engineering. You said that, at the end of the first year or two, your father had virtually earned a salary equivalent only to one he had been earning with one of his earlier employers.
