Bio-constructions require aesthetic, structural, environmental and technological considerations to integrate efficient and friendly systems, contributing to a sustainable environment, generating and regulating the resources of the environment in which they are implemented.
bio-construction has existed for generations, for centuries ,its simple, easy and most of all its fun !!!, we believe ,above all that experience with the materials is key ,therefore we offer an introduction course that teaches several different methods, and from there you can focus on a specific one with us or with our support.
in order to enjoy the benefits of bio-construction to the máximum we need to choose the right method (or combination) to the right - climate ,budget , person, position ,materials in the area and risk management . this requires expertise that we are glad to share.

"It was a really fun and interesting week, I learned a lot and I loved the place and community life with great people. The course division between theory and practice was nice and I like the fact that Shay is always willing to help when the course finished."

"The introduction to earth building (bioconstruccion) course that I attended with Shay Swissa in 2021 was an excellent in-depth intro to the world of earth building. There was a good mix of theoretical and practical during the course which meant that I understood the reasoning behind the processes and techniques that we were applying. I can highly recommend working with Shay as he has a lot of experience in a wide variety of construction contexts. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to present specific information clearly and with added humor.11 out of 10 for the course."

"The Bioconstruction course that I took with Shay was really one of a kind. His methodology about what the world needs and the approach to Green Building was really eye-opening for me to take in and apply into the way I was going to build my home and those of others. There was a really great push for all of us to help each other build our homes and that created a very strong community and connection. I highly recommend the opportunity to study and learn from shay and HATS AND SHOWS !".
