In connection with the work of our company, I became interested to establish if possible something specific regarding the trend towards concrete construction for industrial buildings. To this end a somewhat restricted investigation was undertaken during the past year which covered only the collection of data regarding the floor area, type, and material of industrial buildings erected during the period 1905-15, and part of 1916, within what may be roughly classified as the Middle States.
