About The Concrete
In 1824, an Englishman named Joseph Aspdin invented Portland cement by burning finely ground chalk and clay in a kiln until the carbon dioxide was removed. It was named “Portland” cement because it resembled the high-quality building stones found in Portland, England.
Fast forward to the 1970's. GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) is in its infantile stages and starting to be used in architectural building elements such as the wall cladding on sky scrapers. Because of its unique characteristics in strength and ductility it quickly became the go to material in the engineering world.
