PCH Design Innovation Medal: Peter Brewin and Will Crawford

The Design Innovation Medal, celebrates entrepreneurship in all its forms, both locally and internationally. It honours an individual for whom design lies at the core of their development and success. The PCH Design Innovation Medal was won by UK-based Peter Brewin and Will Crawford, who invented a cement-impregnated fabric called Concrete Canvas.

Concrete Canvas Ltd was set up in 2005 to develop and commercialise the award-winning Concrete Canvas Shelters. Concrete Canvas and Concrete Canvas Shelters were developed to exploit a unique material technology invented by Peter Brewin (MEng) and Will Crawford (MEng) whilst studying Industrial Design Engineering at Imperial College and the Royal College of Art in London.

Concrete Canvas Ltd’s core material technology enables the supply of unique construction solutions that are extremely fast, simple to install and environmentally friendly. The company prides itself on innovation, quality and responsiveness to customers’ needs. The primary markets for Concrete Canvas Ltd are in the civil infrastructure (road and rail), mining and petrochemical sectors where CC is used for erosion control applications such as ditch lining, slope protection and bund lining. The company has grown rapidly since 2005 and now sells its products to over 40 countries around the world.
