Cob is CHEAP, SUSTAINABLE and VERSATILE.
The European Union aims to reduce energy use by 20% by 2020. A major obstacle is reducing energy used by EU buildings and construction, which currently consumes 40% of generated energy (EU2010). Moreover, local planning requirements require new construction and renovations that are sympathetic to the historic built environment, much of which is cob and earth. By creating new inexpensive cob technologies that meet building standards, local and national building firms and consumers can meet planning, environmental and financial challenges. Places available at an upcoming CobBauge Project event. Discussion around Cob, new example buildings, design, embodied energy and its future! (with wine and networking also!) SEP 3rd, at Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, London.
