We promote sustainable construction in Singapore through various product innovations with low carbon footprints and service excellence in this dynamic market. We take pride to be recognized as being the first ready-mixed concrete company to have five of our products awarded with Green Label Singapore. Our green products are as follow:
Holcim Supercrete HS
Holcim Supercrete is a high strength concrete with significantly higher strength than traditional concrete up to 60MPa or above. High strength concrete significantly reduces the structural component size with lesser use of concrete amount in its application, hence increases the availability of space and economic value in high rise building.

Holcim Green FA
Holcim Green FA is a green concrete produced with another eco-friendly product named fly ash (FA), replacing the use of cement. The use of fly ash in concrete reduces the amount of non-durable calcium hydroxide (lime) and converts it in the process into calcium silicate hydrate (CSH), which is the strongest and most durable portion of the paste in concrete. Fly ash also makes substantial contributions to workability and chemical resistance.
Mechanically, fly ash pays dividends for concrete production because fly ash particles are small, they effectively fill voids. Fly ash particles are hard and round, they have a "ball bearing" effect that allows concrete to be produced using less water. Both characteristics contribute to enhanced concrete workability and durability.
