Can we have ramp credit where it's due?

  • Comment

Your recent article on staircases (MetalWorks, AJ 20/27.12.01) featured the excellent Norman Foster-designed curved helical ramp at the London School of Economics. The structural engineering was credited to Adams Kara Taylor while 'supply' of the ramp was credited to AFS Steel Fabricators.

Could I respectfully point out that the ramp was supplied on a 'design and supply' basis by Architectural Feature Services and the actual design was carried out by this practice.
