The construction industry is under constant pressure to produce durable structures that are lighter, stronger and quicker to build. Developments in composite materials have generated exciting results in bridges, buildings and other structures. But the potential for extensive implementation remains largely untapped.

Composite applications are rapidly evolving. Reduced mass, corrosion resistance and superior weight-strength ratios offer significant benefits in the built environment. From an initial range of niche uses to industry-wide delivery, the potential for implementation is limited only by creative design and imagination.

Major asset-owners including Network Rail and the Highways Agency are fostering innovation and steadily increasing composite use in both reinforcement and new-build projects. With high-profile clients driving uptake, the volume of work incorporating composite components is set to experience unprecedented growth.

Does your company have the requisite knowledge, expertise and pioneering attitude to deliver creative solutions? Can you translate cutting-edge technology into lucrative contract opportunities?
