A Structual Alternative to Timber and Steel.
What is new in 21st Century Building Construction
Englands housing needs warrants a new Milton Keynes, building constuction and materials need new thinking, has Mark Singleton got an answer?
Mark has been involved in the development of a new structural building material, using fibreglass made by the pultrusion process.
It has surprising properties. In 2012, it was used to build a three-storey house without steel or concrete, that is energy-efficient to Passivhaus standards. His latest invention is a lightweight fibreglass truss, joined without metal or adhesive. At 40% of the weight of steel that will support the same load, it reduces CO2 emissions by 80%.
Winner of the Travis Perkins Innovation Award 2016, its likely impact on construction will be discussed.
