Advancing the Acceptance of New Building Materials
By Cathryn Canelas
The LYNX Bus Stops/Art Shelters on International Drive in Orlando are the first public structure approved by our local building department, made completely of composite material. In order to achieve this advancement in building materials, Entech designed and conducted structural testing to demonstrate the structures met code requirements and were safe for public use.
In recognition of this achievement, the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) Awarded Entech Creative Industries and Walt Geiger Studios the 2012 ACE Award for Design: Most Creative Application.
The Entech Creative and Walt Geiger Studios Collaborative continue to develop special projects to advance the acceptance of composite materials in construction. As composites are increasingly accepted, architects and designers will have more choices at their disposal to express their visions due to the unique properties of these materials.
