What defines better cities – and better communities? More efficient buildings. More durable roads and bridges. Smarter land use. Safe, reliable energy infrastructure. And the raw materials to power it all.

We need all of these things to be more durable and flood resilient. To save energy and use fewer resources. To power the wheels of the economy, create jobs and provide services. To contribute to, instead of detract from, the quality of living in our communities.

Lafarge is building better cities by making them safer, more sustainable places.

 

Housing and Buildings

The buildings across our cities come in all shapes and sizes. From the gleaming skyscrapers that lend identity and character to our cities, to the tiny bungalows in the ‘burbs that we call home. Hospitals and schools. Shopping malls and stadiums. Factories and agricultural buildings.

They all have one thing in common: the need for enhanced resiliency, energy efficiency, aesthetics and constructability, coupled with reduced environmental impact and a low total cost of ownership. They need to be built to last for generations.

That’s where we come in. With a suite of solutions to meet your context-specific needs, design assistance to help you meet your project’s performance parameters and the expertise to help you build better cities. No matter what type of buildings you build.

Energy

 

The energy industry is vast and complex. The construction requirements of a hydro dam project are different from those of a wind farm. What works in one province may not yet pass in another province. The renewable energy industries experience change quickly, and we work to continue to be proactive by providing you with the best construction solutions, especially during the design process.

We offer solutions for power generation projects to provincial governments and municipalities, private power corporations and public/private partnerships.

Add in remote locations, extreme conditions and a need to be ever-vigilant about safety, and you’re best to work with someone who knows what they’re doing. We work in almost every aspect of constructing energy industry infrastructure, right across the country.
