5 Key Benefits that Maximize Value

Image

Lifecycle Savings

Using concrete during construction means having a building that lasts longer and reduces overall lifecycle costs. The same applies to our roads and other structures.

Image

Maintenance-Free Design

Concrete requires very little upkeep. This is a lasting advantage for builders, contractors and project owners.

Image

Energy Efficiency

Concrete’s thermal mass enables significant energy efficiency improvements for our buildings, reducing energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions, year after year.

Image

Insurance Savings

Insurance costs for concrete buildings during both the construction and operating phases are significantly lower than for buildings constructed with combustible, moisture-sensitive materials.

Sustainability

Concrete’s durability, resilience, energy efficiency and recyclability combined with its innovations to reduce GHGs, make it the most sustainable construction material over the lifecycle.
