- Resource-efficient buildings compliant with environmental labels
- Design and architecture
- Getting the job done quicker on your jobsites
- Bringing you the latest innovative building solutions
- Making your life easier for renovation projects and high-rise building
LafargeHolcim is your partner in optimizing your building's energy efficiency and environmental performance with:
- Efficient building systems that combine our cement, aggregates and concrete solutions with other insulating components to create energy-efficient construction elements (walls, floors, roofs, etc.). For example, lightweight insulated façades using our Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) Ductal®.
- Solutions for thermal renovation and rehabilitation, in order to retrofit your old building according to modern standards and legislation.
LafargeHolcim can provide you with aesthetic building solutions to create unique designs, such as:
- Bright surfaces: With our Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) Ductal® bright surfaces not only set the scene for outstanding pieces of architecture, but also provide a friendly and human dimension to buildings and cities. On top, bright surfaces have the least heat absorption, which pleasantly reduces the heat-island-effect in urban areas, helping to improve well-being and save energy.
- Special textures: Concrete's natural born advantage is that it can take almost every shape. With Ductal®, we offer the vocabulary for a most expressive architecture, limited only by the creativity of the designer.
- Optimized mix designs for more efficient precast and concrete block manufacturing.
- Special concretes dedicated to quicker construction, such as our rapid strength concrete (Chronolia®) and our self-placing and self-leveling concrete (Agilia®).
- High quality cement and concrete solutions for easy on-site assembly of precast elements (walls, floors, etc.).
- Construction specialists working with architects and engineers during the design phase to propose the most efficient materials and product solutions for your building project.
With LafargeHolcim, you are sure to benefit from construction solutions and building systems using the latest technology, thanks to:
- Collaboration with architects, engineers and design teams to tailor the best solutions (cement, aggregates, concrete, and building systems), develop new solutions together, and encourage creativity and innovation in building design.
- LafargeHolcim R&D Center, in Lyon (France), the first of its kind for building materials worldwide.
- Local development labs located near your project sites.
- Portfolio of over 1,500 patents globally.
For the construction of multi-story buildings and the rehabilitation of existing buildings, LafargeHolcim can provide high-performing specific solutions, thereby making the most of the usable space in cities and buildings:
- Concrete solutions for structural renovations and building extensions.
- High-strength concretes for higher buildings with narrower structural elements.
We can also deliver all our solutions across the country, in the most densely built urban areas and remote worksites, with bespoke solutions customized to your needs.
