We’re building a world that works for all

We’re connecting communities and society across the world. We’re proud to play our part in hundreds of transformational infrastructure projects, from wind farms to railways and metros all the way to ports, bridges, and coastal protection. To empower communities with our local, affordable housing and infrastructure solutions. To support construction entrepreneurs to thrive with building materials, training and credit support. To invest approximately CHF 50 million per year to support community development, doing our part on essential human rights, such as education, health and making a living.

Creating thriving communities through transformation

We provide the materials and expertise that allow hundreds of the biggest transformational infrastructure projects in the world to be successful. The results of these projects can change people’s lives for the better, from expressways, ports and bridges in America, to dams and railways in Africa, and from tunnels and offshore wind farms in Europe to metros in Asia, we are empowering communities and connecting society.

Supporting local entrepreneurs

Standing by our communities, we’re securing livelihoods for independent local business owners. Take our Disensa network across Latin America which empowers construction entrepreneurs to thrive with building materials, training and credit support. In the same part of the world, Agrovial is also enabling sustainable and durable roads that resist flooding, to support local banana and coffee growing agricultural communities

3D printing affordable housing and schools

We’re changing the lives of children and families across Africa. With the joint venture 14Trees, we are actively making local materials such as Durabric for more affordable and greener housing. We are also deploying 3D printing to help build affordable housing and schools.

3D printed schools in Africa

We believe everyone deserves the right to a good home and access to education. Through 14Trees, our joint venture with CDC Group, we’re deploying 3D printing technology at scale to build affordable and low-carbon housing and schools in Africa. With its record speed of construction and optimised material use, this technology can help address the country’s chronic infrastructure shortage while creating skilled local jobs and reducing the carbon footprint by up to 70%.
