Using recycled materials to create a modern headquarters for Legal & General
Legal & General’s brief was to create a building that used as many recycled materials as possible.
Coleman Street was the first major development in London to use recycled concrete in its main structure. Using fly ash recycled from coal power stations helped save over 500 tonnes of CO2 during the build.
Coleman Street won the Concrete Centre Award for Sustainability in 2007.
This project was undertaken with Arup as services and structural engineers and Bovis Lend Lease as construction manager.
