Innovate UK

Innovate UK’s Scaling the Edge programmes helped JP Concrete accelerate the launch of its sustainable ‘self-healing concrete’ product for the construction industry.

The Conversation

Concrete fuels climate change – but there’s a nature-friendly way to defend coasts from rising seas.

E&T Magazine

When a radio talk-show host insisted last year that you can grow concrete, he was mercilessly ridiculed on social media. While his argument was uninformed, does bioengineering mean it could one day be possible to ‘grow’ concrete on a small scale?

Sensor City

Liverpool partnership develops sensor-based structural health monitoring system…Motionwall was born out of the need to effectively monitor, maintain and upgrade the ageing Victorian infrastructure of Britain.

Liverpool University

Researchers from the University of Liverpool are collaborating with industrial partners to develop the next generation of ultra-low carbon and resilient materials to decarbonise the construction sector…The project entitled BIOCOREWALLS (BIO-COncrete for REsilient and Green WALLS for infrastructure) is supported by the University’s Partnership Recovery and Resilience Fund.


The University of East London (UEL) is collaborating with a leading concrete manufacturer to develop more sustainable pre-cast wall systems, aiming to cut the carbon toll of the construction industry.

Build in Digital

Mimicrete, a materials technology startup from the University of Cambridge, has been awarded a £450k Innovate UK Smart Grant and unveiled its first commercial pilot with JP Concrete.

The JP Concrete project is designed to advance the development of the startup’s proprietary biomimetic self-healing concrete.

Construction Enquirer

JP Concrete has linked-up with Basilisk to supply its new Sensicrete product in this country.

The self-healing system was developed by inventor Henk Jonkers and allows concrete to seal its own cracks.

It acts as a habitat for limestone-producing bacteria which sleep in the concrete until woken by air and water, which get in through cracks.

Concrete Centre

The third Fresh Concrete event focused on innovative technology that has the potential to transform the performance and uses for concrete. It included new concrete being trialled in roads to wirelessly recharge electric vehicles in motion, and self-healing concrete that uses a bacteria-based admixture, to enhance water tightness, reduce maintenance and increase the life span of concrete structures.
