11 Aprilie 2012

Bucharest, April 11th – Holcim Romania is launching today, as a first on the local market, an online platform containing complete, detailed, expert-endorsed information about how to build a house. www.construiesc-singur.ro gathers in one place all the information needed for construction or renovation works, and is accessible to any type of user.

The website is aimed at supporting all those who would like to build a house or conduct renovation works, either on their own, or with the help of professional workers, as well as the construction specialists, who can find out additional information about the different construction phases, useful advice and mistakes to avoid. All the website sections have been conceived by Holcim specialists, having a vast experience in building materials. The website addresses the users’ projects in a professional manner, using an accessible and enjoyable language, so that there should be no more secrets when it comes to construction works.

„We are always looking for new ways to support our customers, both by providing highly performing products and by offering our know-how based on our extensive experience in building materials. The launch of www.construiesc-singur.ro is part of a wider initiative of Holcim Romania, meant to inform and guide the users of bagged cement. This website is intended as a reliable expert source of information, meant to generalize best construction practices”, declared Rossen Papazov, Marketing and Sales Manager Holcim Romania.

Being aware of the difficulties related to the coordination of a construction project, Holcim Romania specialists came up with answers to all types of questions that the users might encounter in developing their own projects:

• How can I obtain construction permits and approvals?
• What are the main steps in building a house?
• What is the amount of materials I need for the masonry and plastering works? How can I calculate the quantity of materials I need?
• What should I pay attention to and what mistakes should I avoid?

Now any user can find all the information in one place, saving time and energy.

The website contains a set of personalized tools:

• A calculator of the material requirement for masonry and plastering;
• An interactive house on the start page, which can be used to easily access the construction element about which the user wants to find out more information;
• Contact section, where the users can ask questions to Holcim specialists.

www.construiesc-singur.ro will be permanently updated with the latest construction developments and will communicate with the end users, so that they become increasingly aware of the importance of the work well done.
