At the exhibition Lafarge UK - which comprises Lafarge Cement and Lafarge aggregates and concrete - will celebrate some of its key achievements in creating innovative and sustainable building materials to support a low carbon economy.

The company will explain its approach to sustainable construction which includes engaging in partnerships with architects and planning quarry restoration schemes.
