The last 50 years has seen significant changes in the way we build and our built environment, both locally and internationally. The height of buildings has increased markedly along with global and urban populations. New technologies, building materials and standards together with natural and man-made disasters present even greater challenges to the safety of our built environment. The importance of creating energy efficient buildings with sustainable materials has risen to the forefront of the conservation and renewables agendas.
Since 1960, LAF Group has been working as the trusted partner to construction and engineering companies, specifiers and regulatory authorities, to meet the ongoing challenges of fire protection, thermal and noise abatement for structural and mechanical building elements. With LAF Group’s expertise, support, and input, our clients have and will continue to build with confidence.

Going beyond products, LAF Group work in close consultation with stakeholders to clearly understand project requirements so that we can deliver the most effective solution taking account of all critical factors – durability, safety, space, speed, sustainability and cost. Once we have developed and agreed on the best solution, we will, organise and manage delivery and installation on site. LAF Group has access to a global network of quality contracting resources to meet tight deadlines and budgets. In most cases we can back our work with a guarantee for both materials and workmanship.
