Collective housing

For investors, developers, design teams and contractors, building collective housing requires fast track construction on efficient job sites, top level thermal insulation, environmental certification, as well as specific high strength solutions and logistics for high-rise constructions. At LafargeHolcim, we understand your challenges. We are capable of working with you to develop the most appropriate cement, aggregate, and concrete solutions adapted to meet your requirements, from thermal efficient concrete to precast products, high-performance concretes, and efficient building systems.

Collective Housing

Building collective housing means business. As an investor, developer, design team, or contractor, you have specific requirements:

  • Selling flats faster and improving the profitability of your project, through fast track construction and more efficient work on jobsites.
  • Being compliant with local construction thermal regulations, with the help of state-of-the-art insulation performance.
  • Increasing the value of your project and attracting buyers and renters with green building accreditations and labels (LEED®, BREEAM®, HQE®, etc.) and superior environmental features for water, waste, and recycling.

For high-rise buildings, investors, developers, design teams, or contractors need to:

  • Maximize the space available for sale by reducing structural elements' floor area, thanks to high-strength structural solutions.
  • Ensure continuous delivery of large volumes of materials, even in crowded city centers that are difficult to access.

You can rely on LafargeHolcim for all the challenges of your mid- to high-rise collective housing projects

  • Use thinner structural columns with superior strength thanks to our high performance concretes. You can maximize available space and increase the profitability of your project.


We contribute to the thermal performance of your collective housing construction

  • Reduce energy consumption with our advanced thermal-efficient concrete range (with our international brand Thermedia®), which also cuts down heating and cooling costs for your building and your clients.
  • Comply with most local construction thermal regulations, thanks to our complete range of high thermal performance concrete blocks.
  • Create energy-efficient construction elements (walls, floors, roofs, etc.) with our range of efficient building systems, combining our cement, aggregates, and concrete solutions with other insulating components. An example is our insulated concrete formwork for walls and lightweight insulated façades using our UHPC Ductal®.

We help you qualify for the most demanding and attractive green building labels (LEED®, BREEAM®, HQE®, etc.)

  • Improve water management and reduce risk of floods with our new generation pervious concrete (with our international brand Hydromedia™, Stormpave, and Permecrete) and our green roof solutions.
  • Make the most of our demolition waste recycling expertise, which extends materials' lifecycle. We also supply recycled materials for your building, such as our recycled aggregates for a parking lot sub-base (with our international brand Aggneo™).
