MAKING NIGERIA MORE COMPACT
Urban sprawl offers a partial answer to the issues of urban development, but it is responsible for ecological and social problems. Denser cities that are more environmentally responsible and more in tune with the well-being of city dwellers give residents greater mobility and improved proximity between home, work, amenities and services. Increasing the density of cities involves reclaiming abandoned areas and
renovating, but also extending existing livable spaces and buildings and raising their height. This also means employing a vertical approach to construction to free up or preserve breathing space at ground level.
Our solutions play a part in making cities more compact. The variety of our concrete ranges is ideal for the
construction of tall buildings: very high strength concrete for the foundations, lightweight concrete for the upper parts, and insulating concrete for the intervening stories. They also offer very good resistance to earthquakes, deformation and fire, and give architects great freedom with regard to shapes. Our expertise and our capacity for innovation are available to help those who design the urban space of tomorrow.
