#YearinReview April ???? From its vast national parks to the quickly growing cities and ports, Kenya is a country of contrasts. Supporting the country’s development, as well as that of the region as a whole, requires innovative, sustainable building solutions that benefit people and the environment equally. Nairobi is the only capital city with a national park inside its city limits. Within walking distance of the busy downtown, on an area of over one-hundred square kilometers, a diverse population of lions, impala, giraffes and many other iconic African animals is just nearby. Many more people will soon have a chance to glimpse the park fauna from a distance that is safe for both humans and animals -- atop the recently finished super-bridge, which is part of the first phase of Africa’s largest infrastructure project, the Standard Gauge Rail (SGR) project. #LafargeHolcim #cement #concrete #aggregates #buildingmaterials #building #construction #rail #rails #railway #railways #commuting #infrastructure #bridge #bridges #trains #trainpassenger #traincommute #buildingsolutions #yearinphotos

#YearinReview LafargeHolcim has been awarded an important contract for the renovation of the Afsluitdijk, one of the Netherlands’ key sea defense infrastructure projects, with a new specially developed solution protecting dykes against strong waves and rising sea water levels. The new Holcim Basalton Quattroblock will cover around 700,000 m2 of the 32 kilometer long dam. In addition, LafargeHolcim developed a sustainable and efficient logistics solution where materials are delivered by sea to avoid additional traffic on the dam. #LafargeHolcim #cement #concrete #aggregates #buildingmaterials #Afsluitdijk #seadefense #dams #seawater #sealevel #sealevelrise #sealevelrising #climatechange #buildingsolutions #infrastructure

LafargeHolcim and Freyssinet present Ductal Inside, the innovative and cost-effective UHPC shotcrete solution. The first applications relate to reinforcement of under roads and motorways. This solution does not reduce the gauge of the structure, increases strength and durability, and preserves hydraulic and ecological connectivity. The application of Ductal Inside is 3 times faster compared to dry shotcrete.

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.
