A stand to deliver


What ever the arrangements between the architect and engineer on a project and whatever the relative merits of their contributions, the engineer, by agreeing to do the work, also undertakes to deliver a facility that is fit for its purpose no matter how tortured the architect's ideas.

Fitness for purpose does, of course, include quality and safety.
