Green retrofitting

Making renovations efficient and circular across the building envelope


Up to 80% of current buildings and infrastructure are expected to still be in use in 2050. This means that retrofitting is essential to ensure sustainable buildings in use and to decarbonize cities.

Retrofitting, repair and refurbishment


We understand the importance of preserving buildings to decarbonize the built environment. Our solutions, from roofing systems and advanced mortars, enhance the functionalities of existing buildings, ensuring their sustainable use in the long term. Through longer-lasting buildings, we are helping make cities greener.

Ductal® ultra-high performance concrete was used to transform abandoned gas holders in King's Cross, London into 145 stunning new residences, preserving the area’s rich industrial heritage.
