Rammed Earth Australia Pty Ltd have had the honor of being involved in some amazing projects over the years. We are proud to share some of them with you.
Thathangathay Strong Men Project
The Thathangathay Foundation was established to empower upcoming leaders of remote Aboriginal tribes in the Northern Territory, Australia. We had the a small role in this project, teaching groups of young men how to build with Rammed Earth. This part of the project was conducted in Bright, Victoria, by Justin Crawley. These boys, or should we say young men, were enthusiastic and hard working. It was an amazing opportunity for us as well and we are proud to be associated with all involved.

Rammed Earth Building is popular all over Australia and during the Thathangathay Project there was a great interview on ABC Radio and Justin Crawley was one of the guests interviewed about the indigenous rammed earth element of the project along with other interesting guest speakers.
