Northern Powerhouse Director is Looking for Companies to take Share of £39bn Project at AMConf

Tim Wood, Northern Powerhouse Rail Director at Transport for the North, will join the already reputable list of speakers at Advanced Materials in Construction 2019 where he will talk about the ambitious investment plans for a transformed rail network and explain how attendees can get their share.

In a recent talk, Tim explained that he is looking for innovators and collaborators to work with on the rail infrastructure project that he is faced with. Advanced Materials for Construction will provide a valuable opportunity for companies to learn of innovations across the composites, advanced materials and construction sector .

I am looking forward to attending the conference and learning of novel materials that can be used across the project. It will be great to hear of existing case studies using composite materials, new and old, and how they can be used in both infrastructure and building projects. It’s my responsibility to ensure we are reaching out to the right companies to deliver the best we can for the Northern Powerhouse and I am sure that attendees of this conference can help,” Tim Wood, says.

Other confirmed speakers for the conference, which features FRP in Infrastructure, include Laing O'Rourke, STRUCTeam, Jacobs, UCL, Scott Bader, C6(n), Witteveen+Bos and the National Composites Centre.

There is still time to apply to speak; the closing date for submissions is 3rd November 2018 and we want to hear from you. Send your information, including your contact details, to and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible. Speakers will benefit from a reduced rate of just £195!
