In the spring of 1910 we were commissioned to design and superintend the construction of a warehouse 100 x 210 ft., 4 stories high, in the Borough of Brooklyn, New York, for the New York Dock Company. The use of reinforced concrete was recommended and adopted, but from experience and knowledge of the many criticisms of this material and the considerable number of failures in its use, it was decided that very careful inspection should be maintained.
