“Concrete Canvas is a great solution as a viable alternative to below ground piped drainage for many crest drain applications. CC allows for long runs of effective crest drainage which is readily maintainable and prevents newly profiled ditches from overgrowing with vegetation, which in turn offers a cost effective solution for our Client.”

Mark Knowles
Senior Site Agent, QTS Group

“The use of Concrete Canvas to create the elver and lamprey pass at Naburn Weir allows us to carry very low flows across complex ground conditions, without the concerns of differential settlement and without the requirement for constructing a traditional (expensive) reinforced concrete structure... The fibrous material can be latched onto by the lamprey when they are resting on their ascent of the channel and its innate flexibility provides an organic and naturalistic visual appearance, enhanced by how quickly the material has allowed mosses and in-channel plants to become established. The use of this material and this methodology at this site was a trial undertaken by our Fisheries and Project teams, but one which quickly realised positive results... and we are looking for opportunities to replicate this approach at other suitable sites.”

“Great first impression, we’ve not used it before but would definitely do so again. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t require any complex methods: you just need to put it in place and add water. There are so many different applications for it, I will definitely be using it on future projects.”

Sub Agent, BAM Nuttall

“The product was a great success, shown by us using it again on the M1 project, and I would definitely use it on further schemes where the constraints are similar. The speed at which it was installed allowed follow on activities to proceed sooner than expected and allowed work to continue during the wetter months, which may not have been possible when using traditional methods. The product has held up fine, and to date there is no issue with the product, and is still fully functional.”

“After a year of installation, nothing has grown within the Concrete Canvas lined areas, whereas vegetation continues to grow within the stop chipped sections of the pipe track. Concrete Canvas has proven to be the better and more cost-effective vegetation suppressor and we look forward to specifying the material wherever possible for this type of control.”

“Conventional concrete would have taken much more time to install and would have been much more difficult as well. In the end, cost was saved because of how rapidly and easily CC was installed. The Client was very happy. They would like to use CC again and recommend CC to anyone who has similar requirements.”


FOQSCO Ltd.

“We were very happy with the lagoon lining, this installation will become a reference within the Votorantim Group.”

Sebastiao Alves da Silva
Site Operations Manager, Votorantim Metais

“We were delighted with the results and the job ran smoothly…We found the CC easy to install even in difficult periods of bad weather and with us not being able to stop the flow of water. I would definitely recommend this product and most certainly use it again.”
