Industrial and Commercial buildings

Warehouses, plants, shopping malls, and supermarkets all have one thing in common: To meet investors’ and developers’ requirements, design teams have to design the building in a way that allows contractors to apply fast and efficient construction techniques in order to ensure the project’s profitability. Industrial and commercial buildings must also withstand heavy usage and workloads to maintain the continuity of business operations. With Holcim, you can trust our cement, aggregate, and concrete solutions to boost your jobsites and guarantee the durability of your building while giving it an aesthetic touch.

Your challenges

When developing, designing, or contracting an industrial or commercial building, a number of key factors play a crucial role in the business success of your construction project:

  • 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
  • For specific constructions, you need high-performance resilience and thermal insulation.

Our offer

  • We make your job sites quicker and more efficient. Our building efficient systems allow the concrete to be poured horizontally and the walls then mounted on-site, for faster assembly and building time. We have advanced fast-setting concretes that reach the maximum strength faster than traditional ones. And a portfolio of precast concrete solutions provides you with an easy assembly on-site.
  • We ensure the resistance of your industrial and commercial slab floors. Our high mechanical strength concrete supports the heaviest loads and machinery. And thanks to its high mechanical performance, the use of steel fibers is not always required, saving time at your worksite.
  • We optimize the thermal performance of your buildings and data centers.
  • We can provide you with thermal efficient concretes, high thermal performance concrete block solutions and a range of efficient building systems that combine cement, aggregates, and concrete with insulating components to create energy-efficient construction elements such as walls, floors, and roofs.
  • We add an aesthetic exterior and interior touch to your commercial buildings. Our decorative concretes and aggregates offer a variety of colors, textures, and patterns for interior and exterior fittings.
