An Advisory Service on Earth Building

The Earth Building Advisory Service (EAS) is one part of an advisory and information service on building materials and construction technologies known as BASIN (Building Advisory Service and Information Network) which is operated jointly by four European Institutions (GATE, ITDG, SKAT and CRATerre-EAG).

EAS is provided by CRATerre-EAG (International Centre for Earth Construction - School of Architecture of Grenoble) which has extensive experience in the production and use of earthen building materials.

EAS is building up a comprehensive database on documents, technologies, equipment, institutions and consultants as well as on projects and programmes related to earth building. This database is used to provide an enquiry service to interested parties world-wide and to provide the basis for a series of technical guides and publications.

Within the BASIN framework, CRATerre-EAG runs specific training courses on building with earth. EAS also undertakes research and development programs in the field of building materials and their application. This activity includes project monitoring and evaluation.
