Britannia is a large North Sea gasfield. Its successful development was dependent on the project being executed within challenging budget controls. To promote this the project was carried out as an alliance between clients and contractors where rewards were dependent on total project cost and performance. The aim was to align client and contractor skills towards the common goals of creating safe and quality facilities, below cost targets, sharing the profits of success. C. Blow, M.A/ O'Donnell, R.M. Hodges and I. Wright
I would like a better explanation of the jacking of the cable saddles on top of the bridge towers. The cable saddles are on sliding bearings and presumably were preset away from their final position deliberately, so that, when the cables were installed, the saddle would move into its direct location. Was the saddle jacking used to control this process or to actually induce stresses into new suspension cables?
The environmental benefits of using waste materials in construction was identified as long ago as 1974. This paper describes the results of a project undertaken for the Department of the Environment, Transport & the Regions in which methods of utilising waste materials as alternative aggregates in structural concrete were explored. Three types of waste material were identified as potential aggregates: china clay waste, slate waste, and pulverised-fuel ash. IThe project investigated methods of utilising these materials as aggregate by low-cost processing and/or novel mix design. The results of the project were encouraging, since good quality concrete mixes were produced fron all three waste materials. A.K. Butler, D.S. Leek and R.A. Johnson
