The company takes on full building contracts in the immediate region, and will also subcontract for construction of walls only in a wider area provided the project is large enough to make this viable. (Away-from-base jobs incur more costs in terms of worker transport, accommodation and food, equipment float, materials research and are more logistically challenging.) Single homes are rarely large enough for long distance jobs to be an economically viable prospect for either the company or the home owners. As well as a great variety of homes (see photo gallery), Rammed Earth Constructions has built rammed earth walls for a number of commercial projects, including Australia Zoo, the Billabong Surfwear HQ and showroom in Burleigh Heads, the award winning EcoCentre at Crystal Waters and the Carlton UB brewery at Yatala.
We recommend that you contact us early in the design process so that we can provide advice and (if appropriate) also allow time for your project in our schedule. We have found that sometimes people contact us out of the blue for immediate work, and we have been unable to assist. We are currently scheduling work 6-12 months in advance.
John Oliver, the Managing Director of the company and QBSA Nominated Supervisor, is a fully licensed builder and carpenter, with more than 30 years experience in many sorts of construction methods.
