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.

Earth sheltered buildings have an advantage in bushfires because the surrounding soil provides a buffer from direct contact to flames. It also insulates the interior against the extreme radiant temperatures. Concrete underground and bermed buildings resist ember attack more than conventional wood buildings. Properly designed Earth sheltered buildings are cost competitive, last longer and are more fire resistant while minimizing the destruction of the natural environment.
 

We especially build Wine Caves and Cannabis growing structures underground. 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. SEE FarmCaves.com to learn more.

 

ADVANTAGES & APPLICATIONS FOR EARTH-SHELTERED, UNDERGROUND, SUBTERRANEAN...
 
  • Offers Protection from fire and other natural disasters

  • Gives controlled climate caves for growing and storing food, wine, cannibas 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 attract audiences to even remote locations. This is your project's chance to shine.

HAVE WHAT YOU WANT:

While green walls and roofs are becoming ever-more-popular ways to reduce energy costs and decrease the visual impact of buildings, there’s a step beyond that: subterranean and earth-sheltered buildings. Building a structure that is buried in the ground or surrounded by earth above-ground is a simple way to drastically decrease your energy needs, build greener and attract attention.
 
The soil and plants surrounding the structure provide excellent insulation and protection from the elements and fire. And the design in no way has to be a dirt hut with a grass roof and tree-branch furniture – architects are enthusiastically producing subterranean designs that are modern, unique and fantastically desirable. But it doesn’t stop at homes – you can even raise an entire farm’s worth of food in an underground structure.
 
 
Earth Integration Advantages include:

  • Low cost per sq. ft.

  • Low utility costs... up to 70% savings

  • Innovative & versatile designs

  • Numerous plan & covering options

  • Durable, American-made concrete  and steel 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 cover provides consistent interior temperatures near 60 to 70 degrees year round. Utility saving when underground is typically more than 50%. Plus, by managing ideal CO2 and lighting levels growers can achieve healthier, more profitable crops. This team offers coordinated planning, engineering, permitting and specifications for heating, cooling, ventilation equipment, finishes, etc. Plus, a traveling construction crew that builds your project on your site.
