Dear Green Building Enthusiast:
Thank you for your interest in our products and services. And congratulations on your recognition of environmental concern in construction.
Over the past several years there has been a growing awareness of the need for humanity to reverse the destructive trends of modern industrialization and embrace a more holistic, harmonious and sustainable legacy for future generations.
Worldwide, the largest industry on earth is building construction. Even in North America, the construction industry is double the size of the auto industry, which is the second largest industry in the USA.
The most comprehensive and focused body of knowledge that examines the delicate balance between human health and the built environment is called Bau-Biologie (Building Biology). Through the International Institute for Bau-Biologie & Ecology, Inc., a world wide network of Building Biology training centers have been established with the expressed goal of creating this more holistic, harmonious and sustainable habitat for humans on earth.
In recent years our firm has had the great privilege to have participated in the design and construction of over 80 natural, “Bau Biologie”, breathing, low toxic and fully non-toxic buildings in 11 states. Some of the alternative construction systems our firm has used are: Straw Bale, Straw/Clay, Rammed Earth, “Faswall/Durisol” block and most recently “Hebel” aerated concrete block.
Many of these projects have included solar electrical and hot water, natural rain water harvesting cisterns and non-polluting “gravel marsh” wetland septic systems. Other natural features include breathing, soft, wood chip/concrete “terrazzo” floor slabs, natural earth floors, traditional straw/clay plastering and integrated cistern cool water and solar hot water, whole house cooling and heating systems.
Currently available services include:
- Non-toxic, “Breathing” construction consulting
- One and two day seminars on natural design and construction
- Natural low impact energy and site utility development consulting
- Fully detailed CADD custom and stock natural building design plans
- Site supervision, Construction Management and General Contracting
