Marshalls is proudly sponsoring the ‘Royal Docks Ideas Competition’ organised by the Landscape Institute and supported by Ecobuild and the Mayor of London.
The competition has been launched to find innovative design proposals to transform the Royal Docks into a fully-integrated and multi-functional ‘liveable’ space. The 20 short listed entries are being showcased at Ecobuild, the world’s leading event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the built environment which takes place from 4-6 March 2014 at the Excel Centre, London.
Adjacent to the competition area Marshalls, the UK’s leading manufacturer of natural stone and concrete hard landscaping products, will be showcasing its new Commercial Natural Stone product ‘Stonespar’.
Consisting of five sandstones exclusive to Marshalls, Stonspar can be used to create a multitude of design and style opportunities.
Steve Reddington, Head of Commercial Marketing at Marshalls said: “We’re extremely excited to be sponsoring the Royal Dock’s ideas competition, which focuses on transforming an area to build stronger and more sustainable communities for the future.
“Marshalls has long understood that good design and appropriate product use are key to creating spaces which enhance the wellbeing of residents and is committed to producing products which help architects and town planners to fulfil the potential of an area.
“Stonespar is an exciting new product which allows for previously unseen design and style opportunities in stone paving, so it seemed appropriate to showcase this product in association with a competition focussed on cutting edge design.”
