Rammed earth is an ancient building technique that is seeing a resurgence in popularity due to its sustainability and aesthetic appeal. The materials used are sandy-clayey gravels and soils, which are compacted inside a formwork, similar to a concrete framework.

Our stabilized rammed earth walls and structures are composed of several layers. For each layer, the soil is poured approximately 15 cm thick into the formwork and then rammed with a rammer. After the compaction stage, the thickness of each layer of earth is typically 8–10 cm. The procedure is then repeated until completion of the wall.

For traditional or ancient rammed earth construction, referred to today as “unstabilized
rammed earth”, the only binder is clay. Today, modern construction uses other binders such as cement or lime. This is often called “stabilized rammed earth”. This increases the durability and mechanical performance of our environmental wall systems and related designs. Solum Builders creates stabilized structural and feature rammed earth walls and other structures that are eco friendly, aesthetically pleasing, custom designed, energy efficient, and healthy.
