GRC Centre Logo


A specialist provider of support services to users of facade cladding elements manufactured from glass fibre reinforced concrete


The use of GRC as a construction material has grown exponentially in the last decade. Although developed and first used in the 1970s it has taken nearly 50 years for this advanced composite to considered as a primary choice when considering options for façade cladding systems.

In the UK alone we estimated that the market growth since 2010 has been at least a 15 fold increase valuing today’s GRC industry around £75-£100 million per annum

This rapid growth has however caused a repeat of what was seen in the 19070s with new entrants entering the market without having a full and clear understanding of what is required at the critical design, manufacturing and installation stages.

Using our experience gained over our two decades in the sector we provide expert help and assistance to anyone involved in projects featuring GRC. From full end-to-end project management to specialist consultancy at any stage of the project delivery cycle our involvement can ensure not only technical compliance but assist in achieving ultimate project cost savings


The GRC CENTRE is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pennine Building Solutions, a company formed in 1993 and still solely owned and operated as a family business, something we are very proud of.

Over the last 30 years the PBS Synergies group as we are now known has devoted itself to improving quality standards in both the cast stone and the GRC industries. Through our operating companies and involvement with various bodies including the GRCA, British Standards Committees and the European Standards Institute (CEN) we believe we have contributed to the development and advancement of GRC to its current position as a mainstream construction material.

THE GRC CENTRE is a further evolution of our journey into helping anyone involved in projects featuring GRC through industry leading consultancy , installation and repair services.

Utilising our 20+ year manufacturing, testing, installation and consultancy experience we believe we can bring both value and quality driven solutions to any project
