Research showed that building houses required modernisation. A resin base system of GRP composite was chosen to replace a water base system, in a fundamental change to the construction of housing. GRP Composite is a permanent method of construction as it retains its structure over time. Water is used in traditional builds for mixing concrete, cement mortars and plaster. The water evaporates over time leading to shrinkage which can require rectification.
A build system was developed using only GRP Composite no timber, steel or concrete was used in the construction of a prototype build erected in 1988. It has been used daily ever since, providing confirmation of its structural integrity, durability and longevity. This was a necessity born out of the fact GRP Composite was an industry in its infancy, and it needed to be proven, which subsequently it has done most successfully.
GRP Composite has embraced many industries over the last 60 years, from boats and cars to recent advances such as aeroplanes and wind turbines.
Now is the time for a proven build system, Eco Building GRP, to embrace the housing market.
