Urbanization

Cities are growing. With that comes challenges. Urban flooding and fire fatalities being some of them. Intense rainfall overwhelms the capacity of the drainage systems in cities.

How to build a sustainable future

When environmental goals are more important than ever, improving energy efficiency in buildings presents an immediate opportunity to make our towns and cities healthier, safer and more sustainable.

Acoustic capabilities

From railways to tramways, roads to airports, good infrastructure is crucial to urban life, which can be very noisy. The resulting ground-borne vibration, traffic noise – and not to mention human noise pollution – all have a serious and negative impact on our wellbeing, especially in densely populated areas.

Cities that save water

Fresh water is our most precious resource. But extreme weather and fast-growing cities mean that unless we take measures to manage it more actively, it could also become scarcer.

Moving buildings

Beautiful architecture makes us feel better. The emotional impact of beautiful buildings can transcend the personal, even to the extent of improving the communities we live in.

Fire resilience

In land-scarce urban areas, more and more people are working and making their homes in high-rise buildings. These structures can be brilliant solutions to the challenge of safely housing a growing population.

Outer walls

ROCKWOOL Insulation delivers a number of benefits beyond thermal performance in external walls, such as best in class fire resistance, exceptional noise reduction, water repellence as well as vapour permeability, and dimensional stability - meaning excellent fit and real world performance, for the lifetime of the building.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency can reduce the environmental footprint of a growing population
