The oval nine-storey headquarters built as the headquarter for Legal & General on a rare island site was a leader in the use of recycled concrete.

By using 6000 tonnes of china clay stent, a by-product of china clay that is usually dumped on spoil heaps, the equivalent amount was diverted from landfill also reducing the amount of primary aggregate that had to be quarried.

Despite the constraints of the St Paul’s heights, 180,000 sq ft net space was created.
