Building Co. Buries Energy Consumption

The EarthCo Megablock process maximizes energy and resource efficiency to turn local earth into strong, affordable, healthy structures.

We represent a new paradigm for the construction industry which is the largest consumer of energy and resources on the planet. Traditionally we harvest and mine raw materials from distance sources then ship to manufacturing centers which can be hundreds of miles from the source. The resulting building products are then shipped to distribution centers for further shipment to the actual job site. With my technology we take our manufacturing plant to the job site where we turn local earthen material, the worlds most abundant building resource, into giant modular units that are immediately placed into a structural system using mechanical equipment. My system reduces shipping costs to the bare minimum and features the lowest embodied energy costs of any manufactured product/building system in the world.

Our massive earthen walls are extremely strong to resist the increasingly violent weather associated with climate change. And our massive wall systems give the structure superior thermal mass that mitigates outside temperature changes naturally to keep the structure cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This feature can save up to 90% of the energy normally required to heat and cool our buildings. My structures also don’t burn, do not rot or support mold growth, are very resistant to insect and rodent infestation, and feature a closed loop material cycle as earth is infinitely recyclable. My mechanized manufacturing and production process is not limited by human physical capability so production potential is huge and easily maintained because machines do not get tired. I believe this system to be the worlds fastest construction method as we are capable of going from a raw material to a building product that is placed into a structural system in only a few minutes.
