Scope and Content

File documents the executed project for an office building to house the computer facilities of the British Transport Docks Board (BTDB) at Bulls Bridge and Hayes Road, in Southall, Ealing, England. The building has few doors and no corridors, rooms for computers, data control and preparation, and offices for engineers, programmers, and analysts. The client anticipated a 20% expansion of facilities during the life-cycle of the building and Cedric Price developed designs for "expanding" the building without interrupting computer services which were to run 24 hours a day. Design included interior walls that can be dismounted and reinstalled, a raised flexible floor system, and an exterior cladding system that allowed for an interchange between opaque and transparent panels. Existing conditions material includes an ordinance survey (1963) and floor plans for an unidentified building. Design development and working drawings include site plans, floor plans, sections, elevations, and construction details. The plans show: circulation patterns and relationships between areas; a series of alternate floor plans for computer room expansion; connections between original and expanded services; the computer room and equipment; furniture layout; framing and structure; and plans for acoustic and visual barriers. Also included are axonometric drawings of the phased development/expansion of the structure; design validation charts which measure projected "required" design elements against observation and investigation; environmental control charts exploring alternate proposals for illumination, ventilation, air, temperature, and acoustic control of certain areas, and diagrammatic sections showing environmental controls for air intake, returns and circulation; project requirements charts; project task sequencing diagrams; perspective drawings; elevations and sections for an illuminated sign; and details and wall sections for the exterior cladding. Twenty-nine individual and 60 sets of reprographic copies are stamped "issued contractor". Material for publication includes: details, site plans, floor plans and exterior elevations, b/w post-construction photographs, and a photo collage. Some material from this file was published in: Price, Cedric, "ECHOES: Environment Controlled Human Operational Enclosed Spaces", 'Architectural Design' (October 1969), 547-552; "Cedric Price Supplement No. 2", 'Architectural Design', vol. 41, (January 1971), 25; Price, Cedric, 'Cedric Price-Works II' (London: Architectural Press, 1984), 72, 82-83, 112, 113. Material in this file was produced between 1966 and 1984, but predominantly between 1968 and 1973.

Sandy Brown appears as the acoustics consultant and Zisman, Bowyer & Partners appear as the services consultants in this file.

File contains design development drawings, working drawings, reference drawings, photographic materials, and textual records.
