Indian, Bangalore edition dated July, 29-04.

Message from Shri Mahendra Raj :
*******************************************************

3rd August 2004

The Director,
National Aerospace Laboratories
(Council of Scientific and Industrial Research)
P.B. No. 1779, Kodihalli,
Bangalore - 560 017

Subject       :     Proposed Construction of Aircraft Hangar and Associated
Facilities : Approx. Cost Rs. 700.00 lakh

Dear Sir,

Please refer to the advertisement of "National Aerospace Laboratories" in
Bangalore issue of "Times of India" dated July 29, 04 asking for
applications for shortlisting Architects for the above quoted project.

We would like to bring to your notice that the design of an Aircraft Hangar
requires more of Structural Engineering than of Architectural input.  As
such the project can best be serviced by a Structural Engineer as the prime
consultant supported by an Architect, rather than by an Architect supported
by a Structural Engineer.  Economy in the construction of the hangar can be
achieved only by the Structural Engineer by adopting an imaginative and
ingenuous structural solution.

This can be verified from the existing hangars in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata,
Bangalore, Nasik and other cities of India, as well as abroad, which have
all been designed by Structural Engineers or Multi Disciplinary Engineering
Firms.

May we therefore request you to please shortlist only Structural Engineering
and Multi Disciplinary Engineering Firms for this project rather than
Architects.

Thanking you,

Very Truly Yours,

Mahendra Raj
President, IAStructE Head Office, New Delhi

C.C. : Director General CSIR, Delhi

To,
The  Director
National  Aerospace  Laboratories
P.B. No. 1779,
Kodihalli,
Bangalore-560017

Sir,
It  is  highly  surprising  that  a  work  of  Hangar  Design  has  been  given advertised  for Architects  and  not for  structural  Engineers.
I  request  you  to  kindly  make  it  available  for  structural  Engineers  only.


Yours  truly

S.K. PIPLEWAR
