OUR MISSION: to support those with the commitment and courage to create an upbeat, compelling, Deep Green future.
WHY WE ARE HERE: to help people who value the future of our species rethink entrenched methods of building, and to help them build beautiful and highly functional structures using SIREWALL.
Constructing with the SIREWALL System for insulated rammed earth since 1992, Terra Firma Builders has an impressive portfolio of over forty residential and commercial projects around the globe. Specializing in eco and health-conscious custom homebuilding, Terra Firma Builders constructs resilient homes built for the 7th generation.
Terra Firma Builders’ award-winning projects include the longest rammed earth wall in North America, the Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre in Osoyoos. This project has garnered the Governor General’s Medal in Architecture (top honour in Canada) and won first place internationally at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona in the Holiday category. Terra Firma Builders have also been recognized with numerous awards for residential projects, including Best Homebuilder in British Columbia.
Our team has a common set of values which are, in effect, the guiding principals for working with our clients: health, beauty, ease, quality, accessibility, harmony.
