Message from fibUK Chair - Chris Hendy

Steve Denton Welcome to fibUK - the UK National Member Group of The International Federation for Structural Concrete, usually referred to as fib (federation international du beton).

About fibUK

fib has an exceptional heritage in shaping the state-of-the-art in the use of structural concrete. Its work formed the basis for the Structural Eurocode EN 1992. 

fibUK works to support the objectives of fib: to advance the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete construction. fib achieves this through academic research, the development of guidance and recommendations, and the publication of fib bulletins

fibUK ensures the UK is represented at an international level in developing new international concrete design standards and guidance. Our members are the driving force for doing this, so if you are an academic or practitioner with relevant expertise to offer, and you would like your organisation to join fibUK, then we would love to hear from you.
