AMCER EARTH BUILDING TECHNOLOGY
Special notice to all our valued clients and friends
I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, associates and organizations that have supported and worked with us over the past 28 years.
Our previous site has been sold, and all equipment and stock has been relocated to our new premises at:
12 Rawson Place, Kyneton VIC 3444
The new sitehas been set up for production of the Wasp and Termite range of brick making equipment mixers and associated items.
Facilities for brick and soil testing will be available from January 2018.
We are currently negotiating with several organizations considering the commercial production of earth bricks for sustainable housing and commercial buildings.
Note - Amcer are not currently involved in the production and sale of Pressed Earth Bricks or mortar following the downsizing.
This will allow more effort to be directed to research, product development and consulting, and I look forward to contributing to the further growth of earth building in the future.
The down sized business structure has been changed due to economic impact as a result of flawed Government Policy in respect to the performance of Earth Buildings, and an ageing workforce.
Emphasis will be on providing equipment that will enable community development projects in Australia and overseas using Australian technology, and supporting local manufacturers.
We currently have Termite and Wasp brick plants available, in addition to a screening plant and discharge radial stacker conveyor powered by a Deutz diesel /hydraulic unit.
Other items include Sassi Hammer mill on stand with 50 hp electric and transformer start and a 9 bag dust collector.
Environmental awareness and concerns about global warming have seen many Architects and Planners rediscovering Earth as a viable and energy efficient building product.
They offer significant energy savings in climates subject to wide temperature fluctuations.
Earth has traditionally been used as the principal building material by about 60% of the worlds population and since the early 1960's has seen a resurgence in its use in Western Countries. Earth building is re-emerging as a practical and cost effective building medium for residential, community and commercial buildings.
Amcer Earth Bricks:
can be laid to the first lift of scaffold in one day (approx. 1.2m) enabling more economical construction
suitable for use as multi-storey, load bearing walls, or infill with post and beam walls
only require 15mm mortar course, reducing mortar and laying cost, which offsets additional brick numbers per sq. metre
do not require a thick render to finish wall surfaces, thereby reducing overall costs/
