Individual housing

There is no place like home. So when you build a house for yourself or your end-users, it must be beautiful, long-lasting, energy-efficient, quick to build and affordable. Lafarge is the partner you need to help you achieve your objectives. We work with you to select the most appropriate construction solutions and building systems using adapted cement, concrete and aggregates, which will enhance your house's durability, energy efficiency and thermal insulation, while simplifying the work on site.

 

For individual home builders, masons or architects, successfully building an individual house must meet very high standards in specific areas:

  • Reducing heating and cooling bills for the occupants by optimizing energy efficiency and insulation.
  • Maximizing speed and efficiency of the construction process and minimizing waste and costs by streamlining the work on home-building sites.
  • Building beautiful homes, to meet the aesthetic needs of the end-user.
  • Enabling homeowners to pass their property to the next generation, thanks to durable, long-lasting houses.
 

Lafarge is your partner for each of your priorities, providing you with tailored answers
