Make Your Own Building Bricks

GreenMachine producing tongue & groove TerraBricks on construction site at a rate of 4-5/minute, ready for immediate use in the wall system of houses and other structures. TerraBricks are structural, made from subsoil, or 92% subsoil and 8% cement, with a compressive strength of 2,240 psi.

A properly engineered TerraBuilt wall significantly out performs an equivalent wood frame wall system. This is due to the inherent thermal mass benefit of a soil block wall and varies by geographic region.

• Superior energy efficiency due to thermal mass benefits.
• Fireproof, non-combustible and waterproof.
• Bullet proof to small arms fire such as AK-47.
• Excellent resistance to hurricane winds and seismic tremors.

TerraBuilt housing in El Salvador has resisted seismic tremors of 5 on the Richter scale of 1-10 without structural failure.

The construction industry is faced with depleting resources, heightened environmental concerns, high costs, and deteriorating product quality. The United Nations estimates that worldwide housing shortfall exceeds one billion units and is growing.

This system enables construction of high quality, low cost structures made of long lasting materials that save life cycle energy costs, are durable, fire and disaster resistant as well as environmentally sustainable. In 20-24 hours you can make enough bricks for 1,000 sq. ft. house shell.
