Farfan & Mendes, UK’s Concrete Canvas partner on drainage solutions

GUYANESE-OWNED company Farfan and Mendes has signed a partnership agreement with United Kingdom’s (UK) Concrete Canvas at a reception recently hosted by the British High Commission for delegates of the UK trade mission to Guyana.

The partnership allows for the provision of sustainable concrete drainage solutions in Guyana. Concrete Canvas products are made from an innovative material, Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs), with proven use for erosion control, weed suppression, slope protection, and typically, are 10 times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions.

President Dr Irfaan Ali, delivering remarks at the reception expressed his view that the product complements the government’s infrastructural programme, including drainage projects. British High Commissioner Jane Miller said the partnership illustrates the benefits of trade missions referencing Concrete Canvas’ participation in an earlier trade mission.

High Commissioner Miller also underscored the importance of UK companies collaborating with Guyanese companies to grow the economic relations between the UK and Guyana. The partnership aligns with Guyana’s interest in developing sectors beyond oil and gas, and will help deliver environmental and climate change priorities as a lower-carbon alternative to traditional concrete and increased soil-stability functions.
