The structural engineering challenges on this job belies its otherwise small scale. Specifically, we had to solve the problem of transmitting the additional loads from the new apartment onto and through this previously extended and bomb damaged masonry building…and then to demonstrate the adequacy of the proposal to the satisfaction of the building control officer.

Controlling the load path through the existing proved a somewhat Confucian challenge. It was only after much head scratching that we figured it all out.
