Rammed Earth – Past and Present

Rammed Earth is one of the oldest forms of construction. It dates back to the time of semi-nomadic man in the Middle East, predating mud brick and was used in the construction of the Great Wall of China and other monumental structures of ancient times.

With the specialised formwork used by Rammed Earth Enterprises, earth wall construction has been lifted from a basic material chosen by economic and environmental necessity, to a distinctive medium chosen for its beauty, strength, durability, environmental and functional advantages.

The specialised Rammed Earth formwork we utilise has been developed and improved over the last 40 years, and enables our clients versatility in the design including the capability of incorporating angled corners, curved & raked walls, portholes, niches, arches and walls of any length & thickness, up to 9 meters in height.

Our rammed earth walls are highly durable and are sealed with a clear dustproof and water repellent sealant making them maintenance free.
