Interlocking bricks - building with Impact

We believe the best way to build up Nepal is by empowering local people and using local materials. Together with NGOs and local entrepreneurs we provide machines and training for rural communities, teaching them to build safe and affordable homes.


Interlocking Bricks (CSEB) – machines & training for your project

We specialize on rebuilding villages with CSEB – Compressed Stabilized Earth Bricks – an earthquake resistant building technology. With Interlocking Bricks communities can start producing their own bricks and construction material locally. Sustainable, safe and affordable. The technology is approved and recommended by the government of Nepal, Thailand, India and many others.

Stone-cutting – machines & training

With an efficient stone-saw it is possible to cut in minutes what takes hours by traditional methods. We offer portable machines and training for efficient stone-cutting. Perfect for remote villages in Nepal and for saving cost in stone-house construction.
