Challenges & Opportunities of Composites’ Innovations for the Future of Building

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The relatively concentrated industries of aerospace and automotive have seen major progress in the use of composites with an emphasis on the benefits of light weight that composites bring versus competing materials. This overview of composites in the, more fragmented, construction sector shows how composites also bring not only the benefits of light weight and freedom of form to architects and builders but also a whole host of other benefits, such as architecture design, construction reinforcements and repairs. Composites give rise to a wide range of possibilities and the most innovative and sustainable future will go hand in hand with the future of composites. With the construction market being one of the largest in the world, the industry continues to develop, looking for materials to enable innovative designs for projects or to offer novel solutions to challenge industry specifications and standards.
Discover the challenges & opportunities in using Composites in the Construction industry!
