The development of the consulting profession Faith H. Wainwright

The story of structural engineering over the past century is one of men and women applying their knowledge and intellect to make possible the bridges, dams, tunnels, hospitals, concert halls, and every other type of built structure on which our lives depend. Structural engineers, working in collaboration with architects, builders, clients and a variety of professionals who form the teams behind complex projects, create the environment in which we want to live. They manage the risks of loading from wind, from gravity, from ground movement, from seismic shocks, and from people themselves, to make our structures safe to inhabit and enjoy.
