Houses of Tomorrow (HoT) is an innovative and green construction project that Bamburi launched in a bid to fulfil our sustainable construction agenda through low-carbon based building solutions.
It seeks to support our customers achieve their low-carbon construction dreams, and involves careful selection, design and use of materials which leverage low carbon standards in the overall construction, and especially application of near zero embodied energy concrete designed by incorporating low carbon carbon content cement.
Creating construction solutions that are sustainable, durable, responsive to customer needs and anticipate challenges of the future, by addressing environmental challenges while still delivering highly in aesthetics, are just some of the challenges which Bamburi's research and development teams face as they work to develop innovative products which give excellent value to all of Bamburi's customers.
The Houses of Tomorrow program supports customers achieve low embodied CO2 footprint buildings using low carbon cement-based materials and locally available resources.
It involves careful selection, design and use of materials which leverage low carbon standards in the overall construction, and especially application of near zero embodied energy concrete designed by incorporating low carbon content cement.
Some of the cement products used for this construction feature a mix of Bamburi Cement’s products Powermax and Nguvu pozzolanic cements for concrete works. Fundi masonry cement, a low carbon cement, will also be used for mortar and plaster works.
The project run by Bamburi’s parent company Holcim, is ongoing in a number of other countries globally.
In our ambition of becoming a net zero company, we are not only part of the solution, we are committed to supporting our customers in their CO2-reduction ambitions.
Our customers not only benefit from the product’s sustainability credentials and great performance, but also exceptional service.
