New Build


Discover how centuries old techniques join the past to the future. EARTHA’s New Build Project will outline guidance on new-builds

in clay and, in particular, clay-lump. Building in clay will be an advantage in planning sustainability terms in the future.

As part of a project to encourage and promote the use of low energy/impact materials  EARTHA is in the process of compiling technical information that will assist specifiers and builders in the use of clay lump and other earth based materials such as plasters, mortars and renders for new build.

We are looking into the viability of a ‘new build’ project that will have all the latest Planning and Building Control criteria applied to it in order to assess the viability of clay lump whilst highlighting any possible conflicts or pitfalls.
