I am trying to find out the procedure of how a construction such as a building a camp or range or fortification such as a pillbox or bunker was formed and the departments of war involved. The reason for this is so i can follow a paper trail to find construction blue prints and layout of the site, who commissioned it and why and who were involved in construction etc. I assume a request was forwarded to a war department, say the Ministry of works by the war office from a unit in need of a range or camp for more troops or an emplacement for defence or training or even more AA positions. How was this request arranged if the construction in question was for the commonwealth forces such as the Canadians or Australian New Zealand forces or the American. If approved, by whom. Once approved how would the architect be involved and what part of the ministry would the architect come from or would the architect be civilian or military or from one of the Allied forces their own. Was there an official list of architects for the UK ? Would the architect visit the site in question to survey the site and find out the requirements of the construction. Once drawings were approved and passed what was the next stage? I assume that there was a protocol and procedure for constructing on non military land ie private civilian. Was the land commandeered or paid for? Who was to carry out the construction or works, the military RE or RCE etc or a civilian construction company, who oversees the construction and who passed off the works. Theres most probably more to this to add in the protocol of forming a military construction but this is just a rough guess, anyone know what did happened.
