Slide 1: The following photographs attempt to present the ECOBRICK BUILDING SYSTEM and demonstrate the many advantages it has over more traditional building methods. The main and obvious advantages are the speed of build and the energy efficiency: the children attended classes in the 600+m² school block featured here less than three months after the ground was excavated. They have not had to install heating or air-conditiong of any kind here in Málaga where temperatures can oscillate between 6º and 44ºC. Other less obvious advantages are the noise reduction, the increased concrete resistence as a result of a more homogeneous curing process inside the polystyrene without evaporation and the increased durability of the concrete structure as it is not exposed to the elements: this means that a lower quality or cheaper concrete would be adequate from the point of view of strength and durability. Yet another advantage of the ECOBRICK Building System is that it is extremely light weight and in many constructions the erection of the walls has been carried out by female workers, the polysterene mitigates the effects of minor earth tremors and the final construction is a concrete monolythic structure which in more serious earth tremors should be safer. Slide 2: The blocks are laid on their side in case of wind.

Slide 10: The vertical starter bars continue up from the slab to roof level. They have horizontal re-bar tied to them at 25 cm intervals and this gives the load bearing wall sufficient strength to support further floors above. For a three storey building 10 mmØ vertical re-bar tied with 8mm Ø horizontal bar is more than sufficient. <<<<< perfect levels and angles >>>>> : <<<<< perfect levels and angles >>>>> The walls are built up leaving spaces for windows and doors. : The walls are built up leaving spaces for windows and doors.
