Role of composites in green buildings

Composites have an important role to play in the construction of green buildings - especially when compared with the traditional building materials of concrete, steel, wood, and masonry.

Composites are:

  • Light weight - reduces transportation costs and greenhouse gas emissions. It also reduces costs for the building foundation and structure as the composites weigh less than the traditional materials.

  • Corrosion resistant - requires less maintenance and enjoys a longer life as the negative effects of water, salt and UV are eliminated.

  • Durable - longer life.

  • Insulative qualities - For temperature and reduces noise

  • High strength - Depending upon requirements, composite products can be stronger than steel and can support loads in any and multiple directions. This attribute gives the architect "freedom of design" to design something spectacular (also see building facades).

To ensure safety at all times, fire retardants are used during the process.
