A partnership between HE CHICK and BV BARTHOLOMEW in Durban from 1912 until 1939, after which the firm became CHICK, BARTHOLOMEW & POOLE. The partners, in consultation with the engineering firm of AS Joffe, executed the well-known Sugar Stores for CG Smith between 1925 and 1926. Herbert (1975:75) notes this building for pioneering the use of the mushroom column and flat slab in South Africa.
