EarthBuilt Associates, LLC specializes in using engineered soil mixtures for constructing buildings and walls for a wide variety of both residential and commercial applications. The benefits of using earth for these various applications are many. Some of which include:
Availability and low embodied energy of earth
Strength, durability and low to zero maintenance
Beautiful, tactile and highly customizable
Thermal mass walls are perfect for passive solar designs and net-zero energy construction
Earth walls with well designed roof systems are highly fire and earthquake resistant
Earth is the most abundant, globally available, natural resource that humans have. More than 50% of the people on our planet live or work in dwellings constructed primarily of earth. Yet, our culture has migrated towards mass-produced, subsidized materials that in many cases contain harmful chemicals. Rammed Earth construction is truly the most sustainable and healthy movement in the green building arena today.
