CEMEX has participated in the construction of L’Arbre Blanc (The White Tree), a 50-m high, tree-shaped building designed by renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, whose work includes the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London.
Located on the banks of the river Lez in Montpellier, France, this 17-storey residential building features 7-m cantilevered metal work and 194 balcony spaces that give this structure its unique tree shape. For this project, CEMEX supplied over 7800 m3 of concrete, including special mixes of hyper-fluid and high-strength concrete.
To deliver the structural work, CEMEX supplied a fast-drying concrete that enabled the completion of one floor every six days and the total structure in just three months.
Completion of L’Arbre Blanc, a future flagship project in Montpellier, is expected in 2019.
