A BETTER BUILDING MATERIAL
Concrete plays a vital role in our daily lives and the communities in which we live. You can literally reach out and touch the support it provides from the creation of homes, schools, hospitals and public places to our roads, bridges, dams and wastewater systems. It's the superior solution for building safer, more resilient, lower carbon, energy efficient and sustainable communities.
Concrete structures and pavements use energy, water, land, and other resources very efficiently over their lifecycle. In fact, lifecycle assessment studies show that concrete structures and roads have a lower cumulative environmental impact than those made with alternative building and paving materials.
