Cathodic Protection of Early Steel-Framed Buildings

The development of masonry-clad steel framed buildings took place in the UK during the first half of the 20th Century. This period marked the departure of traditional load-bearing masonry and the evolution of modern high-rise office blocks and medium-rise commercial buildings. From 1910-1940 the advantages of steel-frame construction techniques were rapidly exploited and large numbers of buildings were constructed in all major cities and towns of the UK. Due to the importance of this era and the often decorative style of early masonry many buildings are now listed or located within conservation areas. Peter Gibbs and Zia Chaudhary
