Materials, products and services define how our world is built and is why Leviat is gearing up to sponsor and showcase an incredible line-up of innovative solutions from its world leading range of connecting, fixing and anchoring products at Futurebuild 2023.
Held at ExCeL London from March 7 – 9, Futurebuild is an open invitation to a better built environment and is the place to see innovation first hand. A Futurebuild Innovation Partner, Leviat will be part of the renowned Innovation Trail and is looking forward to demonstrating an incredible line-up of products including the Ancon Thermal Windpost and the newest addition for post tensioning applications, Halfen HIT Structural Thermal Breaks.
Through its core offering of construction products that improve the thermal and acoustic performance of buildings, Leviat has already helped deliver some of the most energy efficient structures in the world, reflected in building rating schemes such as BREEAM, LEED and PassivHaus.
CRH recently announced that it has raised its industry-leading decarbonisation amibition even further. CRH has revised its target to reduce Group-wide carbon emissions by 30% by 2030, supporting their longer term ambition of becoming net-zero by 2050. This target, covering all activities across the Group, has been validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), in line with the new framework to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Leviat’s Rune Magnusson, Managing Director, Europe West & APAC commented: “We are looking forward to partnering and participating in Futurebuild 2023, which continues to offer huge potential for Leviat to further develop business opportunities and build new relationships across the construction industry. We are at the forefront of a changing construction market, with Futurebuild being the industry event to put the spotlight on innovative and inspiring products that will help us achieve a net zero future. It’s therefore a great opportunity for us to showcase our specialist engineered solutions which are leading the way in the growing demand from the industry for more sustainable products.”
Jess Marsh, Leviat’s Environmental and Sustainability Engineer, and Leviat’s technical engineers will be on stand G46 and look forward to discussing how the company’s innovative engineered solutions can play a vital role in a building’s (and the planet’s) sustainable future.
Leviat rethink, reimagine and reinvent solutions for the built environment to make homes, buildings and infrastructure that can stand the test of time. Its solutions are creating smart sustainable cities fit for the future. Leviat is also redesigning its processes to support the transition from a linear economy to a more sustainable circular economy.
Expected to attract more than 15,000 professionals from across the entire supply chain including architects, housebuilders, developers, consultants, contractors and manufacturers, Futurebuild will provide the ideal opportunity for Leviat to demonstrate its brands’ industry-leading products which are synonymous with superior technology, product quality and customer satisfaction.

We wish you and your families a safe and relaxing holiday season and a very happy Christmas.
As 2021 draws to a close, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported our business this year, including our customers for entrusting your projects to us and every member of our team for your dedication.
Certain to make a major impact at this year’s London Build exhibition (Olympia, 17-18th November 2021), is our Leviat stand. Leviat is a new name in the building industry, but a company with more than 275 years of combined construction experience behind it.
Formed in November 2020, Leviat brings together some of the world’s most well established and most trusted connecting, fixing, and anchoring brands, including, in the UK, Ancon, Halfen, Helifix and Isedio. The latest innovative product developments from each of these brands will be showcased on our stand (F32).
From the UK’s market leading brand for stainless steel fabrications, masonry support systems and engineered concrete connections, we will be introducing the new Ancon Thermal Windpost, a revolutionary new engineered structural component designed to retain the thermal integrity of the building envelope in low energy constructions by cutting thermal transmission through the windpost span by up to 70%.
In response to the introduction of more stringent fire regulation for high rise buildings, Leviat will also be showcasing its range of thermally efficient high integrity Balcony Connectors, suitable for concrete-to-concrete and steel-to-concrete applications – Ancon Isotec, Ancon STS/STC and Halfen HIT. All have now been comprehensively thermally remodelled to comply fully with the latest fire standards.
From Leviat’s concrete jointing systems brand, Isedio, comes a product development for the new generation of mega-warehouses – an armoured edge protection solution to reduce damage and maintenance for high traffic areas of industrial concrete floors. Isedio ShieldJoint incorporates asymmetric top plates and trapezoidal split line suitable for even the smallest material handling equipment, thus eliminating the need for costly sealant, and reducing facility down time.
Completing our London Build 2021 line-up of innovative developments is Helifix SockFix, a mechanically grouted sock anchor system. These concealed, non-disruptive anchors help stabilise damaged masonry and preserve existing buildings in poor repair, as a more sustainable alternative to demolition.
This exciting line up of new products reflects Leviat’s expertise, skills and reach across a very broad spectrum of construction and heralds the company’s commitment to innovative construction which is, in every respect, better, safer, stronger and faster.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
On the 4th of January, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a new national lockdown for England, the strictest since the initial lockdown in March 2020.
These new measures follow the emergence last month of a new variant of Covid-19 which the government’s scientists have found to be 50% to 70% more infectious.
The government’s National Lockdown Guidance document confirms that the construction industry will remain open, stating “people who work in critical national infrastructure, construction or manufacturing…should continue to travel to their workplace”, and classing builders merchants as essential retail.
Therefore, we would like to reassure all our customers that Leviat remains fully operational, with all departments and production facilities open, albeit with many of our team working remotely.
In addition, the Leviat management team in the UK are reviewing our current comprehensive range of Covid safe working practices in order to maintain employee and customer safety as a result of this more infectious variant, whilst still maintaining our service to our customers.
From 9th November 2020, we will communicate with you as Leviat.
Exciting changes have taken place in our business that enable us to provide you with an enhanced product and service offering, and strengthen our ability to meet your evolving needs in the future.
