About this talk

Running time: 43 minutes

The Inland Revenue building in Callendar Park, Falkirk, Scotland, is the first of Pidgeon's Building Case Studies, in which the development of a building is discussed by members of its multi-disciplinary design team, from the brief, through the design and construction processes, to eventual completion.

The Inland Revenue building, won in competition in 1988 by Jestico & Whiles and Ithaca Estates, was subject of a fast- track management contract. Work started on site in January 1991, and was completed in December 1991, on time and on budget.

This discussion took place in the architects' London office. Taking part were the architect Tom Jestico, the structural engineer Nick Hanniker (Price & Myers), the landscape architect Mark van Grieken (Land Use Consultants) and the management contractor David Spiller (M.J. Gleeson Group).

The programme was produced and edited by Monica Pidgeon.
