Contribute to more beautiful cities


Exceptional buildings, elegant public edifices, harmonious shapes, colours and textures ... to help build more beautiful cities, we offer concrete solutions that inspire and allow the boldest constructions!

Our contribution

Concrete is a material which is flexible enough to create the most extraordinary architectural audacity into reality. It can take unique shapes, mould into delicate structures and a variety of textures and colours, while providing a high level of performance.


LafargeHolcim's innovation has resulted in a wide range of concretes forming a pallet of attractive and inspirational solutions:

  • Our ultra-high performance concretes (Ductal®), our "haute couture" concretes, which combine outstanding performance and exceptional strength with great slenderness, allowing breathtakingly original designs.
  • Our Artevia® decorative concretes range embellish buildings and public spaces publics with colours and textures.
  • Our self-placing and self-levelling concretes (Agilia®) allow technical and aesthetic prowess, while offering a particularly smooth finish ... and remarkably quick and effortless application!


Such solutions enable architects to design and create distinctive buildings, to make functional amenities like hospitals, airports and stadiums architecturally special, and to preserve architectural heritage.


All this creativity helps to make each city a unique, desirable and a pleasant place to live in!
