Offering an alternative to brick
For over 70 years Lignacite have been supplying the housing and construction market with a sustainable block range containing high levels of recycled material, producing dense, medium, lightweight blocks and more recently launching the first of its kind, a CARBON BUSTER block.
Architects and designers continue to create beautiful living spaces pushing the boundaries of the more traditional bricks and mortar. Lignacite's Architectural Facing Masonry (AFM) offers an extensive range containing in excess of 100 permutations of size, colour and texture providing a comprehensive selection of value engineering solutions to the modern designer. These along with the Roman Brick have been used to create many stunning effects, providing cost effective alternatives to the design and build programme.
Our wide range of Cast Stone masonry can be incorporated, creating interesting and decorative features to windows and door surrounds. Matching quoins and cills are available as standard or bespoke items.
AFM has been used by Berkeley Homes in Woolwich Arsenal where our polished facing masonry features in the communal areas. The Royal Wharf in London also features Lignacite's Snowstorm weathered blocks. These were used as the alternative to stone cladding originally specified in the build. This represented an excellent replacement alongside considerable savings as well as providing a sustainable alternative to stone.
