NEW YORK - Know how to build a better waterfront piling? The Composites Institute wants you, but time is short. The deadline is Oct. 2 to submit proposed designs for the Composites Institute contest, formally called ``Next Generation Composite Pile Design/Fabrication Competition.''
The object is to develop innovative designs for polymer composite fender pilings, bearing pilings and sheet pile (bulkheads). Winning products will be installed at selected demonstration sites. Officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Rutgers University will judge the contest.
For information, call John Busel, manager of market development, Composites Institute, in New York at (212) 351-5413 or fax (212) 370-1731.
