Abstract:
During the past few years, building operations in the City of Detroit have been exceedingly active, and it may not be amiss to give a brief synopsis of the precautions taken by the Department of Buildings to safeguard the public by insuring proper construction methods and the use of correctly proportioned concrete in our modern skyscrapers. It is not my intention to enter into the features of concrete making, but merely to outline the system adopted by our department for checking up the quality of the concrete both in the laboratory and in the field.
