Industry response

“There are significant challenges currently facing the construction industry including embodied carbon, waste production and raw material shortages. It is not only the positive environmental benefits that attract us to this product, which contribute to a more circular approach, but also the added value it can bring to our materials.”

Leanne Fletcher, Sir Robert McAlpine

Sustainability Lead

"We have discussed the concept of LCM's innovative products to architects and major contractors - the response has been fantastic! Our intention is to stock Low Carbon Materials blocks and, over time, we will be replacing all of our concrete blocks we supply with LCM's."

Andrew Pickersgill, McGovern & Co

Managing Director

“…with responsibilities covering both waste and building services, I can see considerable potential in Low Carbon Material's low-carbon building products. As a Council we are involved in a wide variety of landscaping and building schemes, and are excited to actively consider the potential of product trials."

Oliver Sherratt, Durham County Council

Head of Environment and Direct Services

“Low Carbon Materials' technology will represent a sizeable reduction in CO2 consumption for several key trade items such as aggregate blocks. The world faces its gravest crisis in the form of climate change, and all funding sources (public, private, institutional) need to invest in companies who have the ideas and technology to tackle this severe issue.”
