Abstract:
Is the concrete block a satisfactory unit for the construction of first class buildings? A good deal of argument has been going on between architects, building commissioners, boards of fire underwriters, builders, manufacturers of concrete block and others, but up to the present time no conclusive tests have been made or data presented to guide those interested in coming to a definite conclusion.
