Environmental Impact

Our clients can rest assured with the knowledge that building an REA Rammed Earth home is a environmentally friendly alternative to traditional methods.

To explain this further, consider – the ’embodied energy’, which is the sum of the energy required to make and transport each of a product’s components, is extremely low for Rammed Earth.

In fact, the only energy is that required for it to be dug out of earth and the energy involved for the truck required to transport it. This means that Rammed Earth’s embodied energy is approximately one twentieth of the embodied energy required to construct a brick house.

More square metres of Rammed Earth walls get built in Western Australia than anywhere else in the world. Western Australians are leading the way to embrace this stellar alternative to generic, resource-intensive construction materials and techniques.
