JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
Composites UK will launch its Construction Sector Group (CSG) to provide a forum for discussion about fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) in construction.
The CSG will operate in a similar way to the Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC), which was dissolved at its AGM in April this year, but with renewed focus and within the framework of Composite UK, giving members access to a wider range of benefits from holding a Composites UK membership.
The CSG will provide a forum for discussion of common issues of working with fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) in construction looking to find solutions to these matters, as well as outward facing dissemination of best practice. The activities of the CSG will be guided by a committee which will be elected from within the CSG membership. For the first 12 months the committee has been agreed as the following.
The CSG will organise focused promotional activities and events and provide a direct link to government through the Composites Leadership Forum and representation thereon through the Chair of the CSG. It will also work closely with the construction lead within BIS to ensure future funding calls and strategy developments are relevant to composites and construction requirements.
