Design Innovation Event
‘Design innovation with FRP composites’, at which Edwin Stokes, Director of FRP Development for Stage One Freeform Composites was a guest speaker, has been hailed as a great success after the event attracted over 100 attendees.
Held at The Building Centre in London, the event was aimed at anyone with an interest in the creative use of composites to achieve complex geometries, introducing the benefits of using FRP composites for various, and often demanding, architectural applications.
The event was jointly run by the Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC) and Product Innovation in Architecture (PIA) and featured speakers from other industry specialists: Gurit, NetComposites Ltd. and Optima Projects.
Edwin says, “Composites allow a flexibility that was previously impossible with traditional materials, providing the way forward for structural innovation and new design possibilities. Attendees at this event were able to gain a valuable insight into the latest developments in this field, the creative options these materials afford and also their positive sustainability.”
