Design and Build Concrete Dome Homes and Structures
Our system of on-site construction using basalt reinforcing systems allows you to be as creative as you like. Very similar to Ferro/cement construction we will convert your ideas into a set of architectural drawings and detailed structural design to get your plans through the council.
Basalt reinforcing bars possess many superior qualities than steel. It's a quarter the weight of steel, twice as strong, won't rust and behaves perfectly for the way we use it to build compound curved architecture without the need for an air-form or mold.

What is Basalt Fibre
The production of basalt and glass fibers are very similar. Crushed basalt rock is the only raw material required for manufacturing the fiber. It is a continuous fiber produced through igneous basalt rock melt drawing at about1,500° C (2,700° F).
Though the temperature required to produce fibers from basalt is higher than glass, it is reported by some researchers that production of fibers made from basalt requires less energy due to the uniformity of its heating.
