Over the past 30 years, contemporary rammed earth walls have become a much loved building material for Australian architects who understand its unique thermal and aesthetic benefits. No other walling system offers the same “humble majesty” of these walls (as described by a recent client). In an era of rising concern for our environmental future, rammed earth walling can offer low embodied energy, very high thermal mass and with ISE, our insulated external wall system, high R value as well.
The Earth Structures Group are an independently owned and operated collective of companies sharing rammed earth construction techniques, formwork systems, innovations and a common business philosophy. Since 1992 the Group have been leaders in rammed earth construction throughout Victoria and NSW, as well as many overseas countries. During that time we have built over 920 houses, schools, resorts, wineries, churches, a university campus and even a high security jail.
We build walls for, and consult on rammed earth projects throughout Australia and in Sth Korea, UK, China, Israel and most recently France.
Earth Structures Group members work closely with architects, designers, structural engineers and builders within their areas to provide the most current advice available to help achieve ideal rammed earth construction outcomes.
