Nearly 100% of construction waste was re-cycled on this flagship development.

John Lewis is the flagship store in Leicester's Highcross Development. The shop has four floors providing 140,000 square feet of selling space. The award winning designers, Foreign Office Architects, were inspired by Leicester's textile heritage. This led to them using a pattern that was commissioned in 1803 by a leading London Linen Draper. The pattern was digitally re-drawn and transferred on to glass panels. The building is illuminated at night from within causing a striking lantern effect.

Following on from the successful completion of John Lewis Liverpool, Titan Ceilings Ltd were contracted to carry out a significant internal fit-out package, including the installation of shaftwall systems, feature bulkheads, partitions, drylining and several suspended ceiling types.
