Individual housing

There’s no place like home. When you build a house for yourself or your end users, it must meet your aesthetic needs and be long-lasting, energy efficient, fast to build, and affordable. LafargeHolcim is the partner you need. We work with you to select the most appropriate construction solutions and building systems using adapted cement, concrete, and aggregates, which will enhance your house's durability, energy efficiency, and thermal insulation while simplifying the work on site.

 
Building, individual housing

For individual home builders, masons, contractors, or architects, successfully building a house means meeting high standards in specific areas:

  • Reducing heating and cooling bills for the occupants by optimizing energy efficiency and insulation.
  • Maximizing speed and efficiency of the construction process and minimizing waste and costs by streamlining the work on home-building sites.
  • Building aesthetic homes to meet the expectations of the homeowner.
  • Enabling homeowners to pass their property on to the next generation, thanks to durable, long-lasting houses.
 

LafargeHolcim is your partner for each of your priorities, providing you with tailored answers
