More concrete designs in GFRC - wait GFHPC, no GFRHPC

Ok, so GFRC is Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete - the Danish company Contec-prefab uses a patented GFRHPC - which is Glass Fiber Reinforced High Performance Concrete. - not catchy but efficient. See the images below to get an idea of how thin -

Contec did the collaboration with Designer Christian Flindt, which I wrote about here. The company has 20 years of experience of working with High and Ultra High Performance concrete technologies - so, the faithful Concretely reader will not be surprised when the early work was based on a technology developed by Mr. Hans Henrik Bache in late 1970´s and early 1980´s. Compact Reinforced Concrete (CRC). (Mr. Bache is the father of Anja Bache who also explores and develops CRC). Do check out their gallery section here for more collaborations.
