BC materials supports you in your earth construction projects.
We advise architects, clients, contractors to design and build with bio-sourced, geo-sourced, and urban-sourced materials.
As every project brings its own requirements, BC materials leverages its extensive experience to take on the necessary tasks: Characterisation of materials, mix design & prototyping, quality protocols & lab testing, architectural detailing & counsel, tender documents & implementation design, ...
Below reference projects give a good idea of what bespoke material development entails.
We have workshops on offer for architects, students, designers & builders. While earth construction is the main focus, the topics also cover the wider topics of bio-sourced, geo-sourced and urban-sourced materials. We partner up with BC Studies, whose website features an agenda showcasing both upcoming and past workshops, facilitating convenient online registration.
We organise workshops on demand for architecture and engineering offices, universities, government institutions,... These workshops invigorate team synergy, foster a culture of perpetual learning, and ignite a spirit of innovation.
We conduct training on your construction site. This training will easily translate your proficiency in traditional gypsum plaster works or classic masonry works into the adept application of Léém Clay Plaster, Léém Earth Blocks or other Léém construction technologies.

We can build and produce small rammed earth elements or other raw earth objects for you. We can build these elements on site or prefabricate them. These elements can become interior objects such as counters, bars, table legs or any other idea you wish to implement with us.
A lot of constructive work is standardized or prefab. But if you want a specific, site-inspired material, we are capable of doing bespoke productions of raw earth materials. We can make materials on-site or prefabricate on other sites, but always fed with ingredients of a specific region & site. All can be tailor made depending on the scale and the location of your project.
BC Materials uses its extensive experience (varying from Georgia to Morocco) to craft tailor-made solutions using bio-sourced, geo-sourced, and urban-sourced materials for your unique project.
