BEng (Hons) Chemical and Process Engineering
Earth is the most abundant, healthy, sustainable, and ecological material we have ever known. It is beautifully simple, yet astonishingly complex and instinctively connects us to nature. We build with only natural materials from the earth (clay, lime, rock, sand) and plants (wood, fibres, wax, oil) in their most natural, raw and organic state possible. The re-discovery of thousands of years of natural building knowledge from every continent, and utilisation of modern techniques allows us to create environments that are healthy, comfortable, sustainable and unique. Specialising in rammed earth, the most solid and strong earthen construction method, we create modern buildings that perform to the highest standards of healthy building. The petrochemical, mechanical, and lifeless construction of the modern world will never be able to replicate the familiarity and calmness of stepping into a natural earth home on a hot day, or the softness of walking barefoot on an earthen floor. We are a part of nature, and just as with the food we eat, using unprocessed natural materials is the most beneficial for us and the environment. Building truly healthy and sustainable places to live and work in will have a life changing effect on our health, happiness and the environment.
