The North American Rammed Earth Builders Association

NAREBA's mission is to promote the use of Rammed Earth as a building material and method. We strive for the free flow of information among members, to be a center for reliable information for interested professionals and the general public, establish a comprehensive research and development program, define and enforce high building standards, and teach rammed earth building methods.

NAREBA, a not for profit entity, offers the opportunity for its members to share in the passion for working with earthen materials and to contribute to the advancement of RE construction. NAREBA builders share a resource base of over 150 years of collective building experience and have committed to building RE walls with the highest standards in the industry.

NAREBA Standards and Specifications

Our members adhere to the highest rammed earth building standards. The NAREBA Standards and Specifications are routinely incorporated into the construction documents for commercial, residential and institutional projects throughout North America. This document provides a minimum building standard for our builders and assists design professionals in specifying rammed earth for their projects.

Research and Development

NAREBA is participating in Research opportunities that enhance our understanding of how contemporary rammed earth walls perform. We are focused on a range of research projects that will provide greater understanding of how our walls integrate into modern structures.
