The Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC) has announced the programme for their 2013 annual conference which will take on the subject of “Innovation in Composites for Construction” on the 24th April 2013 in Bristol, UK.
Whilst focussing on the latest innovation in the industry the event will also cover recent case studies showcasing the successes and challenges faced when using fibre reinforced polymer composite materials (FRPs) in the design and build process.
Claire Whysall, Coordinator of NGCC said, “The event is an excellent opportunity not only for those currently working in this field to keep their knowledge up to date, but would also be a great starting point for anyone who wanted to know more about using FRPs, particularly architects or engineers who haven’t worked with the materials before.”
Registration for the event is now open. The full programme and registration information is available at the organisation’s website.
