Architects, designers and contractors have been inspired to use Lignacite masonry products since 1947.
Lignacite is a family run company that has been around for 65 years. The company is firmly founded on old fashioned values without being stuck in the past. It strives to combine a keen eye for design, a love of materials and a view to the future.
With a desire to meet modern day requirements and to use natural, recycled and renewable products, Lignacite has become the market leader in innovations for concrete and facing masonry blocks.
Lignacite has provided commodity building blocks for use in landmark buildings, such as The Gherkin and The Shard, the company also supplies blocks for general housing, offices, hospitals, schools, leisure and commercial developments.
For Lignacite the use of carbonation technology is an extension to their long standing sustainability. As part of this, the company uses local sand and gravel for its blocks and up to 90% recycled waste materials, such as wood shavings, glass and shells in its products.
Westfield's, the Stratford Shopping Centre, built at the same time as the Olympic Project, was built using on one of Lignacite's most efficient blocks; Lignacite. Over 120,000m2 were used on the project, locking up over 15000 tonnes of CO2.
