GBE CobBauge 2 Launch Event

CobBauge 1

  • The CobBauge Project team (based in UK and France) set out to run a long term project to understand Cob (Bauge in French) and to promote its use in the 21st century.
  • They sought Interreg funding to support their project.
  • Interreg in turn required the team to prove the viability of a traditional earth based building material and method of construction during the first year to prove its technical performance capability, before releasing it with extra money for the remaining years.
  • The team have succeeded in the first challenge and and now funded to progress with the remaining years.
  • The Phase 1 final event in December 2018 set out a plethora of evidence of the materials capability and the methods capacity to be a credible method of construction, compliant with the building regulations and exhibiting numerous other advantageous properties.

CobBauge Phase 2

  • The Phase 2 workshop in July 2019 started an interactive process of involving stakeholders in brainstorming the detailing of the 21st century Cob & Bauge construction.
