BUILD YOUR PROJECT to resist fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, theft and other disasters. This DESIGN + BUILD traveling crew helps you build your more resilient projects anywhere above and below the ground.

Earth-sheltered and above-ground fire-resistant structures offer a distinct advantage in scenarios of bushfires and forest fires. The encompassing soil and other fire-resistant components act as a barrier against direct flame contact, while their incorporation of earth and shutters provides insulation, safeguarding the interior from the profoundly intense radiant heat.


Compared to typical wooden structures, these buildings display heightened resistance to ember assaults.

Meticulously engineered fire-resistant buildings, constructed using materials like concrete, wood, or steel with fire-resistant properties, not only demonstrate cost competitiveness but also exhibit prolonged longevity. These structures not only elevate their fire resistance but also curtail the extent of natural environmental disruption, making them an optimal choice.


We also build Wine Caves and growing structures underground and above. Offering ideal indoor growing environments with maximum security, filtered air, controlled light and unlimited flexibility. Maximize your crop yields with minimal costs while saving time and energy. There are many hybrid earth Integrated building systems that offer more sustainable architecture choices. This team can can assist in selecting you preferred choices and produce construction documents, engineering and permit applications so you can build what you want on your site.


  • Offers Protection from fire and other natural disasters

  • Gives controlled climate caves for growing and storing food, wine and cheese making to growing produce, mushrooms and livestock with reduced energy and water cost, plus hidden from view - saving the landscape and views.

  • Homes in your style adaptable on flat to very steep sites at affordable prices.

  • Businesses of all types from luxury Spas, Hotels and Restaurants to basic Farm and Storage buildings. (Underground Farming produces larger yields, up to ten times more, in reduced climate controlled spaces)

  • When security is your focus, whether storms, tornados, fire or intrusion, we build solutions.

  • Earth Sheltered Structures and Sustainable Architecture attract audiences to remote locations. This is your project's chance to shine.

Earth Integration and Fire Resistant Material Advantages include:

  • Low cost per sq. ft.

  • Low utility costs... up to 90% savings

  • Innovative & versatile designs

  • Numerous plan & covering options

  • Durable, American-made concrete, steel and wood construction

  • Minimal maintenance

  • Improved ventilation control

  • Automated light deprivation systems

  • In-house design and construction

  • Structures of any size

  • Extra-tall options

  • Fast construction times

  • Optimal growing environments

  • Improved security & inventory protection

Earth Integrations and Super Insulation provides consistent interior temperatures near 60 to 70 degrees year round. Utility saving when underground or super insulated is typically more than 50%.This team offers coordinated planning, engineering, permitting and specifications for heating, cooling, ventilation equipment, finishes, etc. Plus, a traveling construction crew that can build your project on your site. 


 The advantages are many:

  1. A local material that is usually plentiful and can often be found locally reducing transportation costs and environmental impact. Can often be made at the construction site or nearby which eliminates the need to transport the materials required to build the walls.

  2. Primarily a bio-degradable material

  3. Helps with management of resources and limits deforestation

  4. Energy efficiency and eco friendliness

  5. Cost efficiency

  6. An adapted material

  7. A transferable technology

  8. Market opportunity

  9. Long lasting. Average life of a wood frame building is 70 years.

  10. Reducing imports

  11. Flexible production scale

  12. Social acceptance

  13. Provide better noise control

  14. Earth Integrated construction is economically beneficial

  15. Construction is environmentally sustainable

  16. Strong Structural Integity with proper engineering

  17. Promotes local culture, heritage, and material

  18. Earth and Clays is available in large quantities in most regions

  19. Earth is very good in fire resistance

  20. Earth walls (loam) absorb pollutants

  21. Easy to design with high aesthetic value

  22. when insulated improves indoor air humidity and temperature

  23. It encourages self-help construction

  24. It requires simple tools and less skilled labor

  25. Loam preserves timber and other organic materials

  26. Provide a nice place to live and work 

  27. Environmentally sound - Dirt is a renewable resource that is plentiful. Takes less energy to make compared to the extreme heat necessary to make traditional concrete, and the deforestation required to build with wood. Earth walls are sound proof, fire proof and mold proof.

  28. Non-Toxic - Since the blocks are made from natural material they do not out-gas any toxic chemicals.




Earth build construction also has some limitations:

  1. Proper soil needs: improper soil can’t be used because it has to be well proportioned to make the blocks work. Untrained teams or lack of proper material will produce low-quality bricks

  2. Foundation needs: A compressed earth wall requires at least 18” thick footings or at least 33% wider than the wall width

  3. Structural limitations: Wide spans, high & long building are difficult to do. Reinforced concrete and/or steel or timber skeletons is must be used and Earth is used as infill. Building hybrids required.

  4. Low technical performances compared to reinforced concrete

  5. Over-stabilization through fear or ignorance about this building method can lead to poor designs

  6. Under-stabilization resulting in low quality products

  7. Requires innovative waterproofing solutions especially in wet regions.

  8. Low social acceptance due to failed examples (due to unskilled people, bad soil and/or equipment)

  9. Earth construction is labor intensive

  10. Houses can behave poorly in the event of earthquakes unless engineered for earthquakes.

  11. Special skills needed for plastering

  12. Creating earth materials onsite is economical and sustainable, transporting them decreases their value

  13. Suitable for small structures but larger spaces will require additional structural details to be achievable




Traditional to Modern Earth Designs are planned as strong fire & disaster resistant structures that will protect your family.
