A generic term covering a wide variety of construction techniques, particularly where two different materials are used in combination to fulfil a specific function.
For example, composite floor slabs can comprise in situ concrete with profiled metal decking, which acts as structural reinforcement. These slabs are supported on hot-rolled steel beams. Often, the beams are composite themselves, using shear connectors (normally welded headed studs) to achieve structural efficient with good spanning capability. Composite Construction can also use pre-cast concrete slabs with a composite structural screed. Composite Construction is also known as Hybrid Construction.
