Sandwich construction just in time for tea

Letters

I was interested to see the letter from Jonathan Manser about prefabricated sandwich construction (AJ 16.11.00).

It reminds me of a day in the early 1960s when, working from home, I heard an altercation at the back door about not wearing muddy football boots in the house. Realizing that my mentor was about to arrive, I was tempted to hide the nearly finished design of a steel-framed, all-dry construction modular house. Too late, the tousle-haired, mudencrusted, cheerful boy (my son) burst into the room. I explained I was trying to decide on suitable cladding panels.'What about polished GRP sandwich panels, self finished internally and externally filled with insulation, ' he suggested. Then an arm reached round the door and swept him away to tea, bath and bed.

As he wrote last week, The Manser Practice has always tried to be out front. The photographs above show a steel-framed house built in the '60s which is still going strong and has only been modified by the application of paint.
