Innovating to meet such challenges is a key differentiator in the building materials industry, and the curved tower gave LafargeHolcim an opportunity to show its superior expertise in building materials and special concrete. High-strength concrete is particularly important in multi-story buildings such as this one, as it helps to create the right structural rigidity while allowing for more floor area and leaner elements like pillars, beams and walls. The concrete products supplied for CityLife's twisted tower reached a C 75 resistance, or more than twice the strength of normal concrete products. Holcim Italy is one of the few companies that offer these advanced concrete solutions. #urbanplanning #OnlyLafargeHolcimCan #LafargeHolcimInnovation #Innovation #Innovative #InnovativeMaterials #TeamWork #GoTeam #CityLife #UrbanArchitecture #UrbanLiving #Skyscraper #Tower #Concrete #Building #BuildingMarterials #Architecture #Concrete #Cement #zahahadidarchitects #city #citylifemilano #milano #readymix #citylife

Buildings and infrastructure form the very basis of societal development. They also account for about a third of worldwide CO2 emissions. Society urgently needs to create a more sustainable built environment using products and solutions with lower environmental impact. Holcim Italy has provided solutions to minimize the environmental impact and make CityLife buildings sustainable. CityLife is connected by the new M5 metro line with high-density nodes such as Bicocca University and the San Siro football stadium. The M5 is used by over 130,000 passengers each day, thus eliminating 15 million car trips per year. #OnlyLafargeHolcimCan #LafargeHolcimSustainability #Carfree #Pedestrian #Sustainability #TeamWork #GoTeam #CityLife #UrbanArchitecture #UrbanLiving #Skyscraper #Tower #Concrete #Building #BuildingMarterials #Architecture #Concrete #Cement #urbanplanning #metro #milano #sustainablemobility #city #citylifemilano #readymix #citylife

Like ports on Mediterranean islands, Athinios is small and struggling to cope with the heavy traffic of Santorini’s thriving tourist industry. The rebuilding project, awarded to construction company Eretvo S.A., must therefore be carried out at different stages to ensure the facility can be operational at all times. To ensure minimal disruption, submerged caisson technology is being used for the new quay, using ready-mix concrete provided by our Greek subsidiary Heracles.
