Sustainability

The Precast division of Lafarge shares the company's perspective on sustainable construction, which involves reducing a building's impact during its lifetime while controlling cost and preserving aesthetics and comfort.

 

Lafarge Precast designs sustainable building solutions based on triple bottom line: social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and economic prosperity.

First Precast Concrete Net Zero Energy Home

Lafarge Precast and partners have designed and conceptualized a Net Zero Energy precast concrete home for Habitat for Humanity (HFH).

The exciting pilot project will demonstrate how precast concrete can be used to build energy-efficient and sustainable homes. The duplex's innovative and integrative design, coupled with sustainable materials, will help create the ultimate energy-efficient precast concrete home. The project is a first-of-its-kind in Canada and will provide a hand up to two hard-working HFH families.

"Lafarge is proud to support Habitat for Humanity in this exciting pilot project that will show how precast concrete can be used to build highly energy efficient homes. We are pleased to be involved in a solution which delivers on environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainability." said Rene Thibault, Regional President.
