About

Our goal is to build green, healthy, comfortable and positive buildings! ◆ For this, we use natural, sustainable and local materials (wood, strawbales, raw earth) and support the development of a local circular economy. A large part of a building's carbon footprint comes from the building materials themselves (manufacturing, destruction, polluting waste). The use of straw and wood not only avoids these drawbacks, but also allows the storage of CO₂. ◆ We prefabricate our elements in our workshop, for quality control, quick installation and a reduction in transport and nuisance on site. We have developed an innovative production line that is totally specific to the implementation of straw bales in a wooden frame. In parallel with this research, a great deal of work has been carried out on the development of clay-based coating techniques laid in the workshop. ◆ We produce very efficient buildings that require minimal energy for use and production and therefore have a low environmental impact (low energy, passive or even positive energy). Over the past 10 years, we have built more than 50 buildings: houses, schools, workplaces, etc. ◆ The company is set up as a cooperative, where the workers are all independent and actively participate in decision-making. We also have about fifty external cooperators who are as many resources and motivation to push us to always move forward. The capital is open to anyone who actively joins the company, be it the workers or certain subcontractors that we are used to work with. This means that we can work together in a collective reflection and a spirit of continuous improvement of our actions.
