Contribute to more durable cities

Resisting time, natural disasters and reducing environmental impacts are major challenges for cities. Our constructive solutions and systems contribute to stronger, long-lasting buildings and infrastructure, while addressing environmental concerns such as improving the energy efficiency of buildings or water usage.

Our contribution

Sustainable cities are not only cities with parks and gardens, they are also durable cities that can resist the passage of time and stand up to natural disasters.


That's why we offer solutions to construct buildings and infrastructure that can last. Concrete is our best asset: strong, natural and maintenance-free, it endures through the years. And in the event of earthquakes, cyclones or seawater corrosion, we can further increase its strength and resistance with our special enhanced performance products.


We are also developing innovative building solutions and systems that help conserve water and energy resources and reduce carbon emissions:


  • We have improved the natural thermal qualities of concrete with the ultra-high performance concrete-based thermal breaker (Ductal®). 


  • We also offer Hydromedia® permeable concrete, which absorbs stormwater and helps natural runoff soak into the ground. It reduces the risk of flooding for pedestrians and drivers.
