APT Australasia Chapter is delighted to have been able to facilitate the addition of this material from Professor Miles Lewis’ library to the Building Technology Heritage Library, and thank Meher Bahl for her incredible efforts on this project.

We note that this year will mark the tenth anniversary of the BTHL.  Mike Jackson, who has driven this incredible project throughout that time, is currently working on a summary publication to mark that anniversary.
