Every year, engineers come up with innovative materials that can be used to design and build better structures. Many items in the environment are actually more useful than one might think, and engineers are constantly looking for ways of improving structural efficiency while saving costs. In recent years, structures have been built using mass timber, rods of carbon fibre and even concrete that has been fused with grass. Indeed, engineers can use more materials than just concrete and stone when bringing a structure to life.
