The paper reviews a novel modular constructional element for the building and construction industries. The modular construction comprises hexagonal elements assembled together to form a constructional assembly of honeycomb form secured by fixings which clamp the sides of adjacent elements. Concrete, or other appropriate material, is disposed within the elements providing a composite type of action. The novel type of modular construction has potential applications in the building, construction, and highways sectors. It could be used as a permanent or temporary structure for roofs and walls, it may also be used for concrete pavements, tunneling, and retaining wall structures.
