About Lignacite Ltd
Lignacite manufacturers of concrete building blocks and facing masonry. Sustainable building materials and green building products.
 Lignacite blocks have been used in projects such as The Gherkin, The Shard, The Olympic Stadium, Canary Wharf and both Heathrow and Stansted airports.
They also supply many of the major house builders who recognise the value and importance of using sustainable and recycled materials.
Much has changed over the years; however the core values and principles have endured. Lignacite remain dedicated to supplying added value, bespoke concrete and masonry which is designed, sourced and manufactured in the UK.
From the early days of using local wood shavings, to today, where every Lignacite product contains a high degree of recycled and waste material.
From a single product, Lignacite now produce a range of blocks to meet every need. These vary from lightweight for use by housebuilders to high density structural blocks such as those which support The Shard or form the central core of The Gherkin.
 All Lignacite products contain recycled material.
Lignacite, our original block, contains 50% whereas our lightweight Ashlite block contains over 90% including ash, glass, wood and waste from blast furnaces.
All Lignacite delivery vehicles are Euro 6 compliant and our transport fleet is fully FORS Gold accredited which enables us to deliver our blocks throughout congested central London.
Lignacite are committed to continuing an extensive R&D programme ensuring we stay at the cutting edge of the construction industry.
