Party Wall I Struct E paper
Simon Pole published a paper in the journal for the Institution of Structural Engineers,
The article, for engineers is a viewpoint or opinion article, relaying the experiences of working with many Party Wall Surveyors who wish that more engineers would be familiar with Party Wall procedures. The article concentrates on foundation and basement construction and the complex issues surrounding Special Foundations.
It highlights the central role that engineers play, in many party wall matters and specifically subteranean development.
The article suggests that the Institution of Structural Engineers should establish a task group to provide specialist advice in this important area, both for engineers and to clients, developers and Party Wall Surveyors. Joint consultation should also be provided with regard to the proposed Subterranean Development Bill, which has had its second reading in the House of Lords.Download Report Posted in Pole
