Our Knowledge & Experience

Over the last 23 years we’ve worked with numerous architects, self-builder and builders on a varied range of different building projects. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions:

  • How do I make my project more sustainable?

  • How do I ensure that I create a healthy living environment?

  • How do I ensure my design is resilient and will cope with future climate change?

  • How do I ensure the products will work with my design, without any risk of future problems?

  • How do I make sure the products I choose, achieve my targets?

Back to Earth is a natural building material supplier with 23 years of experience. We’re not your typical builders’ merchant though and instead work closely with our clients during the planning, designing and building phases of projects.

As a material supplier we partner with some of the world’s leading natural building material manufacturers. Our intention is always to bring to our clients the very latest material innovations and offer expert technical support.

Where we really add value though is with our design consultancy. With years of building experience, we help to ensure our clients use the most effective material systems.

We do this by spending time reviewing their building plans, before making informed recommendations about the correct use of materials.
