Regional LafargeHolcim Awards 2017 Europe

The winners of the LafargeHolcim Awards 2017 winners for Europe have been announced in Marseille, France.

The days when the sustainability of a construction project was a matter of ad hoc measures are over – sustainable construction has become systematic and specific. This was emphatically shown by the results of the LafargeHolcim Awards in region Europe.

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching

Subtraction

Phrases
