Addressing housing challenges with innovative building solutions

Energy efficiency

Energy-efficient building solutions are an important consideration for any housing development. Our advanced insulation products ensure maximum comfort while reducing heating and cooling costs for end users.

Speed

Construction speed and efficiency are key factors when building housing. Our smart project management solutions optimize costs and ensure you can meet customer needs on time and on budget.

Durability

For sustainability and cost purposes, modern housing must be built to last. Whether collective or individual, housing should be resilient enough to endure from generation to generation.

Aesthetics

Beyond functionality and efficiency, customers today are seeking attractive, comfortable and ergonomic home environments. Aesthetics are a crucial factor to attract investors and homebuyers.

Compliance

In addition to meeting regulatory requirements, our experts can meet the most demanding green building certifications through water management, demolition waste recycling and innovative material combinations.

Waste reduction

Minimizing waste during the construction process is essential to contribute to the circular economy. Reduce waste with our ready-to-use mortars and easy-to-handle small containers of cement and concrete.

Ecuador’s largest affordable housing project, Casa Laguna, was built using our ECOPact green concrete. Construction of the 3,500-unit development produced 60% less CO2 emissions thanks to our ECOPact formula.
