We are committed to delivering these solutions profitably: in 2015 this segment has contributed 15 million CHF EBITDA to LafargeHolcim.
We offer a wide range of innovative solutions for the construction, renovation and extension of affordable houses, tailored to the local challenges and needs of individuals, NGOs, and public organizations responsible for housing.
