About us


Created specifically for erosion control, containment and shelter applications, Concrete Canvas® (CC) products are part of a revolutionary class of new, innovative materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). CC is a flexible, concrete filled geosynthetic which provides a thin and durable concrete layer when hydrated. Typically, 10-times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions; essentially, it’s Concrete on a Roll™.

In 2013, Concrete Canvas Ltd was nominated as a finalist for the MacRobert Award, for the innovation of the Concrete Canvas material.

Founders William Crawford and Peter Brewin, along with UK Head of Sales, Phill Greer, attended the awards dinner. They were presented with a framed certificate of recognition by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. They also got the chance to meet HRH, The Princess Royal Anne.


Concrete Canvas® (CC) has been used in the rail sector since 2009 and is rapidly establishing itself as the construction material of choice with network providers around the world.

The speed and ease of installing CC means it is well suited to time-critical track-side work, reducing line possession and improving safety. Eliminating issues associated with rebound from shotcrete, and the large plant and equipment required for traditional concreting methods means rail works can continue without line closures. CC is BBA certified with a durability in excess of 120 years when used in erosion control applications.
