Topic: GFRC Construction

Hello everyone,

Have you guys heard of GFRC (Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete) ?

I've heard that building with this material, the construction happens faster.
I'd like to know if anyone of you have used this material for building?

With this material, is the constructed building strong? as strong as a regular pillar constructed building? 

Also they say this GFRC costs cheaper to build. Is it true?
Will the building last for 50+ years?

thanks.

Dear Nishant: GFRC pre-fabricated boards are starting to show in facades and elevation in commercial buildings. As of now, in India, they do not replace the inside walls of residential buildings.
