Thank you for mentioning the formation of the Modular Society in your Back Issues section (31 January, page 34).
Although it no longer exists as such, the fruit of its efforts can be seen in every commercial building. Its successor is the Building Standards Group of the British Standards Society, which acts as a user group for those involved in construction standards – amazingly, 40% of the total number of standards published.

Anyone interested in the use of standards and standardisation in their widest definitions is welcome to join us at one of our monthly Tuesday evening meetings in central London. For details, contact Fiona Gibbons at the British Standards Institute headquarters on 020-8996 7081.
