Abstract:
The contractor, who built two experimental ware-houses of thin shell precast concrete elements for the United States Navy under a lump sum contract awarded on a competitive basis, describes how the unique construction problems involved were approached and solved. Also discussed are the actual costs of the job and the estimated costs of building five similar warehouses with the know-how gained on the first two.
