High-performance concrete containing Lafarge cement was used to build the John F. Limehouse Bridge, which spans the Stono River in Charleston, South Carolina.
Thanks to this concrete, the South Carolina Department of Transportation expects to save 250,000 dollars per year in maintenance costs. The bridge can resist significant seismic loads and withstand the impact of an 800-ton ship.
In 2050, 70% of the world population will live in cities, twice as many as there were in 1970. Whether large, medium or small, whether in mature or emerging countries, cities are central to the challenges facing the planet. To improve cities, Lafarge contributes to the construction of cities around the world, through its innovative solutions providing them with more housing and making them more compact, more durable, more beautiful, and better connected.
