The purpose of IREO (International Rammed Earth Organization) is to educate and inspire people to build with stabilized rammed earth. We also support builders and aspiring home owners by providing information, education and a directory of building professionals, material and equipment suppliers.
What are stabilized rammed earth ( SRE) walls? A structural masonry wall system made from stone, sand, clay, silt and a cementuous binder. Most modern walls have reinforcing steel and insulation embedded inside the walls.
Modern rammed earth walls are:
- Structural and can support massive weight.
- Seismic resistant, steel reinforced and approved by a structural engineer.
- Energy efficient high performance
- Durable and beautiful
