Industrial & retail buildings

Warehouses, plants, shopping malls and supermarkets all have one thing in common: when a developer or contractor starts building a new one, fast and efficient construction is critical for the profitability of the project. Such buildings must also withstand heavy usage and workloads to maintain the continuity of commercial and industrial operations. At Lafarge, we have the most appropriate construction solutions and building systems using adapted cement, concrete and aggregates to meet your requirements. You can trust our solutions to boost your jobsites and guarantee the durability of your building, while giving an aesthetic touch!


Whether you are an industrial or retail operator, a developer or a contractor, you share some common priorities when you launch the construction of a plant, a warehouse, a shopping mall or a store:

  • Rent or sell the building as soon as possible , to maximize the profitability of your project.
  • Reduce repairs and maintenance so the industrial or commercial activities can run at full capacity and contribute to your business success.
  • For shopping malls and supermarkets, you want to attract as many customers as possible, with the help of aesthetic and appealing designs.
  • And for specific constructions, such as data centers, you also need high-performance resilience and thermal insulation.

For all these expectations, you can rely on Lafarge


We make your jobsites quicker and more efficient

  • Our selection of Efficient Building Systems™, such as our tilt-up wall solutions, allows the concrete to be poured horizontally and the walls then mounted onsite, for faster assembly and building time.
  • Our advanced fast-setting concrete Chronolia® reaches its maximal strength level faster than traditional concretes.
  • Our wide portfolio of precast concrete solutions provides you with an easy on-site assembly with optimized manpower.

We ensure the resistance of your industrial and commercial slab floors

  • Our high mechanical strength concrete Extensia® supports the heaviest of loads and machinery as well as repeated use.
