Search Help

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction

Union

photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word

Nesting

(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching

Subtraction

geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed

Phrases

"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)

archit*

Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
