If you missed the last JEC Europe 2012 in Paris (March 27-29, 2012) here is the opportunity to purchase the proceedings of the Construction & Building Forum in PDF format.

 

The adoption of composite technology: Stretch the imagination to construct a reality:

 

Key Focus

  • Unusual dimensions through an innovative challenge and project of rapid speed construction
  • Retrofitting of existing construction using externally bonded FRP composite - Applications & Challenges
  • Green building materials: Sustainable construction

 

Construction & Building (The adoption of composite technology: Stretch the imagination to construct a reality)

 

  • Unusual dimensions through an innovative challenge and project of rapid speed construction
  • Retrofitting of existing construction using externally bonded FRP composite - Applications & Challenges
  • Green building materials: Sustainable construction

 

Buildings are a market sector in need of more sustainable solutions - in both the construction process and the long term operational impact. Composite growth could benefit from bringing innovations to the buildings sector that address the global macro-trends of population growth, increasing energy consumption and climate change. Market needs and drivers are ever challenging both in terms of performance, sustainability and local customization. Composite solutions can definitively help on many aspects including: rapid urbanization and complex structures, long lasting and corrosion resistance materials, energy efficient buildings and the use of sustainable building materials.
