Chancery Building – US Embassy

In June 2019, HeidelbergCement‘s Greek subsidiary Halyps began delivering high-strength concrete for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic Chancery Building, the Athens landmark that houses the US Embassy.

The original Chancery Building was designed by Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius and opened in 1961. Caddell Construction is currently renovating and upgrading the historic building. This large-scale project is expected to take approximately five years to complete.

Hot weather and heavy traffic make supplying ready-mixed concrete for this project a major challenge. Halyps, markets concrete under the brand name ET Beton. Thanks to the good reputation of the ET Beton brand, promoted by the large fleet of concrete mixer trucks and pumps, constant quality and outstanding know-how, the company has become a key supplier of ready-mixed concrete for major projects in the Attica region of Greece.
