ENVIROCRETE Bioclimatic Houses & Building - ENVIROCRETE is Green Construction System that converts scrap waste and recycled wood into Quality Bioclimatic Houses

Envirocrete Pty Ltd introduces a sustainable & efficient alternative green building technology to speed up construction and delivery of affordable green quality houses to address the global housing backlog. The system is made up of 3 elements: 1.ENVIROCRETE® RAW is special type of green, light-weight aggregate that provides the perfect combination of the structural properties of cement & the thermal insulation and acoustic properties of wood. 2. ENVIROCRETE® MIX is a special type of green concrete that when batched with ordinary Portland Cement ASTM-C150-Type-I & water can be used to produce concrete products such as hollow core blocks, hollow core slabs, solid precast wall panels, light weight floors, decking and roof systems. 3. ENVIROCRETE® CONSTRUCTIONSYSTEM is an innovative unique alternative building process that combines best practice of Bio-Climatic Architecture and Engineering with off-site pre-fabrication industrial production technology.

Key features

  • Mineralized woodchips are produced for 100% replacement of conventional sand and stone aggregates in the concrete mix in a specialized processing plant. Installed capacity:30 m³/hour: Monthly Consumption: 3000-4000 tons of scrap wood
  • Precast structural wall panels with density 800 kg/m³ vs concrete 2400 kg/m³;Thermal insulation(U-Value=0,36 W/m²k) brings 34%-60% energy savings. Precast Factory capacity: Wall panels 2660 m²(18cm)/per day; special EV blocks 20.000 blocks/day; hollowcore
  • Bioclimatic houses are of superior quality in terms of structural stability, flexibility, durability, energy efficiency, and perceived wellness of living, resistant to fire and earthquakes, with excellent natural thermal and acoustic insulation. Certified
  • Envirocrete ABT works very effectively as a carbon sink storing CO2e for manufactured building components, at the same time by being an alternative building material to conventional steel aluminium plastic there is notable CO2e equivalent substitution eff
  • The prime constituents of the EnviroCrete Mix is cement & treated woodchip aggregates in 100% substitution of sand and stone aggregates that are non longer employed. There is no need to quarry and transport heavy non renewable materials and instead wood c
  • EnviroCrete Bioclimatic houses in bringing a 40-60% Energy Savings to to thermal insulation have a clear repercussion on the life style of the home owners in reduction the consumption and need for electricity and related utilities and increasing indoor d


  • Economic benefit for the home owner. EV House brings 30-40% saving on the electricity bill, 2. It is Green Certified and generates Green Carbon Permits (monthly income) with a ROI of 15-20 years.
  • Benefit for builder: EnviroCrete is 60% lighter and 3 time larger volume than conventional concrete. Faster and economical to transport and build, Increase housing delivery capacity and job creation,
  • Benefit for Government: Bioclimatic houses cost 25% less than conventional housing. Are deliverable in high numbers and timely because of precast modularity A 150m2 house takes 4-5 days to be erected
