The aim was to bring together and improve a number of separate recommendations which were currently being used by different groups within the partnership. Published recommendations by The Concrete Society and the Cement and Concrete Association were also considered and included wherever appropriate, A client steering committee was set up to monitor progress and ensure that as much existing knowledge within the partnership as possible was included in the manual. This committee took an active part in providing ‘feedback’ from the design and detailing groups. ‘The Manual has been well received within the Ove Arup Partnership and this has provided the stimulus for wider publication. Many of the details shown init are particular to current practice within the partnership. However, most engineers in the profession should find them acceptable. ‘The author would like to thank the Client Committee, the Members of which are listed below, and Ray Ingles, for the time and effort they have given to the project. The author also wishes to express his appreciation for advice and assistance received from Howard Desmond, Barry Gould and Jack Allison. Client Committee V. J. A. Kemp (Chairman) C.H.1. Balmond L.
