White Young Green (WYG) Specialist Structures Division is holding a series of UK interactive breakfast seminars on the use of FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) composite materials within the construction industry.
They are working in close association with The National Composites Network and Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC) to promote the advantages of modern materials with innovative design and engineering to provide efficient, optimised solutions to meet clients’ requirements.
The Specialist Structures Division, based in Southampton, have completed projects in virtually every industry, ranging from something as small as titanium hip joints to large structures such as a classroom of the future. They have been working to develop unusual building structures such as hanging office space, landmark features, large sculptures and public art projects.
David Kendall, Director of Specialist Structures commented: “No concept is too strange for us to consider – we love the challenge. We are helped by computational analysis capabilities which enable unusual structures to be analysed, including those outside of normal codes and guidelines. The series of interactive seminars throughout the UK are designed to introduce our innovative capabilities to a wider audience who may have demanding problems in the design and engineering aspects of a project.”
The first seminars are in Bristol on the 29th November and Cardiff on the 30th November.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
Cobra International is celebrating its 40th year and has commissioned a book that will look at 40 key projects and 40 key people that were integral to the company’s growth. ‘Klaus Simmer and The King Cobra: A breakthrough in surfboard design and production technology’ is an extract article from this book and a breakthrough composites product for Cobra, establishing its presence as a manufacturer of high performance windsurf boards and creating global visibility for the Cobra brand.
