EASY TO BUILD

Our building blocks have interlocking feature which means much less mortar is required between courses, construction is easier and costs further reduced.

JP Blocks are load bearing, so you can do whatever you want with the walls.

 

PREMIUM QUALITY

The durability of our building blocks will allow it to last for centuries! Ancient earthen structures still stand today in many parts of the world. The expected life span of a wood frame building is just 70 years. Compressed Interlocking Stabilized Soil Blocks (CISSB) have proven to be waterproof, fireproof, bug proof, bulletproof, sound resistant and mold resistant. CISSBs are an incredible building material.

-The health, comfort and durability of CISSB buildings are superior to that of concrete block or fired brick constructed structures

-CISSB is proven to be stronger than the conventional clay brick. Dry compressive strength testing at the University of Bath, UK, suggests that compressed interlocking stabilized soil block is up to 80% stronger than a clay brick.

 

LOW COST

JP Blocks are significantly less expensive than concrete blocks because the materials are locally available and it uses less mortar (thus eliminating or greatly reducing material costs). It is cheaper to stabilize compressed soil blocks with a small amount of cement than to build with concrete blocks or clay bricks.

Also plastering is not needed as our blocks have smooth finish and fine color.

 

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

The main advantage of compressed stabilized soil blocks is that it requires lesser energy than fired bricks or concrete blocks, and hence the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is 80% less than fired bricks. No trees are chopped down to fuel brick kilns, ancient forests are preserved and C02 emissions drastically reduced.

In addition to being good for the environment, energy savings are immediate because the thermal mass properties of CSSBs results in lower heating and cooling requirements.

Brand quality guaranteed!

 

We employ highly skilled labour and use quality material to ensure high quality building blocks and construction works.
