Office buildings

Building offices is a significant long term investment. As investors, developers, and design teams maximize usable space and obtain globally recognized green building accreditations to attract clients, contractors will have to make your office building available quickly on the market in order to ensure the profitability of your investment. LafargeHolcim can help you. We have a wide portfolio of innovative cement, aggregate, and concrete solutions as well as building systems and services for quicker jobsites, state-of-the-art environmental and thermal performance, and maximized usable space in your mid- and high-rise office buildings.


When developing, designing or contracting an office building, a number of key factors play a crucial role in the business success of your construction project:

  • Maximizing usable space to optimize the profitability of your project.
  • Making the offices quickly available on the market for an early return on investment.
  • Adding value to your office construction projects through acknowledged green building labels (LEED®, BREEAM®, HQE®, etc.),
  • Featuring the best environmental and thermal performance, to meet the local standards and limit usage costs for your customers.


We maximize the industrialization of your job site for a fast track construction process

  • Easy on-site assembly with optimized manpower, with the help of our wide portfolio of precast concrete solutions.
  • Accelerated construction of multi-story buildings with our rapid strength concrete (with our international brand Chronolia®).


We help you make the most of available space and contribute to the profitability of your building

  • Thinner structural elements with superior strength, even in high-rise constructions, by using our advanced concretes.
  • Taller, more technical buildings designed to fit in tight city spaces, thanks to our high performance concretes (HPC).

We can help you obtain the most demanding green building accreditations (LEED®, BREEAM®, HQE®, etc.)

  • Reduced energy consumption and heating and cooling costs with our range of efficient building systems, combining our cement, aggregates, and concrete solutions with other insulating components to create energy-efficient construction elements (walls, floors, roofs, etc.)
  • Lower temperatures and cooling costs, with our light-colored concretes with high Solar Reflective Index (SRI), such as our internationally available Artevia® decorative concrete, which reflects heat rather than absorb it. 
  • Improved water management through our new generation pervious concrete for the surroundings of office buildings (with our international brand Hydromedia®).
  • Green roof solutions that reduce energy consumption, lower the heat island effect, and improve the water management of your office building.
  • LafargeHolcim building consultants, who work with you at the design stage to find the right combination of products and systems to attain green building accreditations.
