Composites UK will be launching its Construction Sector Group (CSG) at the Construction Sector Showcase on 6 October at the Building Centre, London.

The CSG will operate in a similar way to the Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC), which was dissolved at its AGM in April 2015.

The group will provide a forum to discuss the common issues involving working with fiber-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) in construction and look to find best practice solutions. The activities of the CSG will be guided by a committee which will be elected from within the CSG membership. For the first 12 months the committee will be:

  • James Henderson, Atkins Ltd – Sector Group Chair
  • Martin Halpin, J Murphy & Sons Ltd – Sector Group Vice Chair
  • Mithila Achintha, University of Southampton – R&D Task Group Chair
  • Neil Farmer, Tony Gee and Partners
  • Brian Bell, Independent Consultant (ex-Network Rail)
  • Simon Eves, Pipex px
  • Suzanne Wood, Construction Composites
  • John Drewett, Concrete Repairs Ltd
  • Neil Loudon, Highways England
  • Jim Quinn, James Quinn Associates
  • Rob Dean, Network Rail

The CSG will organise focused promotional activities and events and provide a direct link to UK government.
