EARTH-SHELTERED BUILDINGS - NCMA

#TechTipTuesday What are earth-sheltered buildings?
Earth-sheltered buildings refers to using earth as part of a building’s thermal control system. Buildings can either be built into the earth or built above grade and have earth bermed around its exterior after being constructed. Concrete masonry is the popular material choice when constructing an earth-sheltered building because of its strength, durability, resistance to fire, and other properties that makes it suitable for earth-sheltered building applications. https://ncma.org/resource/earth-sheltered-buildings/
