Arc Architects

Arc is interested in the commercial development of innovative materials using unfired clay binder.

In 2002, Arc led a project to develop unfired clay bricks and mortar for the Errol Brick Company Ltd. The first extensively tested earth masonry materials currently mass-produced in the U.K., they were designed to be used without specialist skills or equipment. While sadly the Errol Brick Co. has since closed, others have since developed similar products.

In 2009, Arc collaborated in an industry wide R&D project, funded by the Technology Strategy Board.

Our book, Earth Masonry: Design & Construction Guidelines, published by BRE Publications in 2008, is an excellent primer.
