Our services

We are a construction company that specializes in the use of ecologically sound, local materials that are found in the regions where we work.

Who we are:

We are a group of builders who share a common goal of promoting the benefits of natural construction.

Our mission is to show that by using local, natural materials, we can solve many social problems that are caused by a lack of dignified living spaces.

We promote health-centered architecture, building without materials that contaminate the environment. We believe in returning to the planet’s basic elements: earth, water, wind, and fire, in order to live in greater harmony with them. These should be the principal factors we consider when starting a construction project.

By way of our environmentally friendly building methods, we have joined a worldwide movement in search of a more sustainable relationship with our planet.

We have over 17 years of experience behind us.
