Formable facade cladding with GRC
"Glass-fibre-reinforced concrete (GRC) is an extremely formable and versatile cladding material suitable for both exterior and interior cladding projects. One such project is the concert hall in Amare, the new performing arts centre in The Hague, Netherlands."

GRC stud-frame construction – an overlooked opportunity
"Stud-frame construction is often overlooked when producing and installing glass-fibre-reinforced concrete (GRC), despite offering a superior solution. GRC with embedded stud-frame construction offers savings in both substructure costs and a heavily reduced mounting time."

Developing a new generation of quality control of GRC
"Quality is of essence when talking about production of glass-fibre-reinforced concrete (GRC) elements for the building industry. Now a new breed of quality control for production of GRC is seeing the light of day; a quality control method that can potentially increase both precision and efficiency. A method based on 3D scanning."

Durable architectural facades with GRC
"Glass-fibre-reinforced concrete (GRC) is a very versatile cladding material for both new buildings and renovations, which provides unique design options for both architects and builders. Its list of benefits is long and includes fire resistance, the ability to create complex shapes, low weight, durability and a positive environmental impact."

Endless surface options with GRC
"GRC has long been known as a go-to material for architects when there is a need for complex geometry, light weight and high durability. The most recent development with GRC now also provides architects with endless options when choosing a surface for their project."
