The transition to composite materials in construction is a natural one. With greater emphasis on durable, environmentally-friendly components, the need for new materials is growing, and the benefits of composites make them an ideal fit.
Known for their light weight and remarkable strength, reinforced plastics are now also being viewed in terms of their elevated design flexibility and customization, enabling unique, advanced designs without sacrificing performance. These benefits are very real and being recognized in construction projects across the globe. Stories such as Apple’s new Campus 2 creating the world’s largest freestanding carbon fiber roof and Shanghai Disneyland’s Tomorrowland utilizing composites to build a unique, futuristic experience offer us examples of the shift towards the innovative and captivating designs made possible by composites.
