Davies Maguire are delighted to have won the Responsible Business category at British Land’s Supplier Excellence Awards 22. Against strong competition we demonstrated our environmental and innovation credentials and willingness to challenge construction norms.
This is the synopsis of our entry:
Davies Maguire identified an opportunity to use cement-free concrete ‘Wagner EFC’ within the redevelopment of the amphitheatre theatre at Sheldon Square, Paddington Central. Over the last year we have guided the design team and British Land away from the originally proposed large format precast concrete elements, towards a more sustainable solution, driving down the embodied carbon by 79%. Construction is starting imminently and when complete the installation will be the largest architectural use of EFC concrete in the Northern Hemisphere.
