Hanson product to be used in new London development

Published by , Editorial Assistant
World Cement,

Hanson’s Regen ground granulated blastfurnace slag has been specified for use in a high profile mixed-use development in Shoreditch in the East End of London.

The Stage will offer a mix of living, office, retail, and leisure space when it is completed in early 2021. It is named after Shakespeare’s Curtain Theatre, the remains of which were discovered onsite and are now being excavated.

Regen is a cement replacement product that enhances the durability of concrete, while adding to its sustainability credentials. It was specified for use in the foundations of the 37 storey residential tower, as it helps to minimise the production of heat, reducing the risk of thermal cracking.

Using Regen reduces the carbon impact of concrete through both its manufacture and its use: replacing 1 t of portland cement with 1 t of Regen reduces its embodied CO2 by around 850 kg. As a result, the 750 t of Regen that will be used at The Stage is equivalent to taking nearly 1600 cars off London’s roads for a year.
