The CobBauge project’s main aim is to create an economical, insulating construction material with low environmental impact, reducing waste by using the earth available on site. The other main challenge of this project is to develop the market for cob both by responding to a demand and expanding the network of builders able to use cob in construction.
First, to meet these objectives, several lines of work are scheduled:
- The development of new cob: materials and implementation processes
- The creation and mobilization of a network of professional practitioners in construction and in cob
- The communication on the objectives and main results of the project.
These actions will then lead to the training of builders and craftsmen in the production of cob buildings as well as the construction of a large scale cob building.
