Showcasing our world
More books available
Our first book was the long-awaited autobiography of Sir Harold Harding, (It's Warmer Down Below) tunnelling engineer and pioneer of soil mechanics. Significant projects include much of the London Underground, the feasibility study that underpinned the Channel Tunnel, as well as sitting on the Aberfan Tribunal and advising on many tunnels around the world. This book is enriched by the sense of history and well-developed wit that was key to the author's approach to his work.
The book was launched in the Library of the Institution of Civil Engineers on 17th September 2015.
