HCB Bridge

An established partnership years in the making, Shawn Beamish (CMSI) and John Hillman (HCB), had conceptualized advancements in infrastructure and industry fabrication. Today, it's changed the way a variety of industries look at fabrication utilizing FRP Composites and hybrid iterations.

Design and consulting firm founded in 1996, the HCB products combine the durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites with the functional advantages of concrete and steel. The result is resilient structures and bridge systems benefitting from the extended service life inherent in composite materials.

The lightweight design provides added benefits for shipping and erection while using standard construction equipment and methods.

HCB offers a revolutionary approach to structures and bridge construction. The patented application of HCB technology can be found throughout North America.

HCB Hybrid Composite Solutions Design Team Leader

John Hillman has been working as a structural engineer in the inspection, construction, and design of unique bridges for over 35 years. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering John began his career working on the construction of a cable-stayed bridge in Richmond, VA. Following this assignment, he completed his master’s degree, where he discovered his penchant for inventing with the development of innovative floor systems for steel-framed buildings. He has been the Engineer of Record for almost every type of bridge structure imaginable, including a Cable-Stay, an Arch, a Truss and a Suspension Bridge as well as numerous conventional structures.

One of John’s greatest accomplishments to date, is the development of the Hybrid-Composite Beam (HCB®). The HCB® combines advanced composites with concrete and steel. This unique embodiment of structural form results in a lightweight, corrosion-resistant and sustainable alternative to conventional materials. In addition to being recognized for one of the Top 25 Inventions by Modern Marvels Invent Now Competition in 2007 and one of the Top 10 Inventions of 2008 by Popular Science Magazine, John
has won numerous design and construction awards in the United States as a result of HCB®, including:

  • American Council of Engineering Companies- NATIONAL GRAND AWARD-2009
  • American Composite Manufacturing Association–2010 ACE AWARD
  • Construction Innovation Forum–2010 NOVA AWARD
  • American Society of Civil Engineers–2013 CHARLES PANKOW AWARD FOR INNOVATION
