We were delighted to see 55 Great Suffolk Street featured at the “Material Choices” PechaKucha event that revolved around the circular economy. This project serves as a prime example of our commitment to sensitively restore the cherished Grade II listed warehouse in Southwark’s Bankside Ward.


Distinguished speakers from the realms of architecture and construction elaborated on their inventive circular approaches, encompassing the utilization of cutting-edge software, rigorous building audits, prioritizing deconstruction over demolition, and mitigating Scope 3 carbon emissions.


A special thank you to Ed Crooks from Hawkins Brown for presenting 55 Great Suffolk Street. A project that embodies circularity and illuminates how this will enhance the future use of the historic building.


We extend our thanks to the insightful contributions of Pauline Metivier of ReLondon, Liam Ross of Heyne Tillett Steel, Anna Lisa McSweeney of White Arkitekter, Brody Isaac and Claire Tribe of McLaren Construction Group, and William Drinkwater of Tarkett.

“The NLA’s Material Choices PechaKucha event was a brilliant opportunity to share our insights on the circular economy through the case study of 55 Great Suffolk Street, an innovate restoration and reuse project developed by Fabrix.”

Ed Crooks, Architect – Hawkins Brown
