Building design has been a challenge for engineers for years. Although nowadays we have very modern materials, thanks to which it is possible to create really durable constructions, the possibilities end at some stage. Thus, engineers and material scientists are constantly looking for solutions that would make it possible to create a durable building, yet light enough to allow many storeys. The visual effect is also important. So what material is worth choosing?
The most important suitable material
Definitely, nowadays everything is made of concrete. At present, we can not imagine building that would be made in a different technology. It is very important to choose the right concrete for such a building, because a lot depends on its quality. Concrete reinforced with fiberglass has recently become very popular. More and more people are choosing to implement it in the project. So why is it worth choosing GRC building and what are the advantages of using it?
How does GRC concrete increase building design options?
First of all, we must be aware that concrete buildings, if they are to be tall, must be relatively light. We can not use concrete that will have a very high specific gravity. In this situation, it may turn out that the foundation of our building will simply collapse. You should find a material that will be both durable but also relatively light.
This is the concrete reinforced with fiberglass. It is a very durable material that has the same excellent resistance to cracking as well as durability, like traditional concrete. However, more and more often it is a material used to design buildings (especially the high ones), because it is very light. One can not forget also that the admixture of fiberglass makes this concrete also very attractive to present. Thanks to this, each building is not only very durable, but also visually attractive. Definitely GRC concrete fits perfectly into the modern style of today. We should choose this option, when we start prepare some projects.
