NetComposites is pleased welcome Archello as a support partner for its seventh biennial Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC 2015) conference on 9th- 11th September 2015 at St John's College, University of Cambridge, UK.
Archello is the only platform that tells multiple stories around projects, from the manufacturer to the architect, making it the most complete platform for architecture and design. It has a clear mission to connect the whole built environment and make the industry more transparent and efficient. The ‘How It’s Made’ concept reveals how parties involved in building projects, such as The Shard and the New Stedelijk Museum, worked together with the original vision of the architect and products supplied by manufacturers.
Presentations at the conference will focus on current topics within the construction industry with the purpose of highlighting the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in new and existing all-FRP structures as well as strengthening, refurbishment and reinforcement applications in traditional infrastructure. ACIC attracts practising engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies and promotes an active exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.
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.
Technical Fibre Products will showcase its Optiveil nonwovens at China Composites Expo in Shanghai on 5-7 September.
