Ecoarc, is a group of skilled builders, dedicated to a harmonic construction, through the use of renewable
materials and energies in integrated designs.
For years we have been training workers of the local community to use renewable materials and cut down waste on building site. Our construction system uses wood from reforestation and as little as possible non renewable materials like steel and concrete.
We intended to bring up to date ecologic construction technics to the region by creating a Tropical Studies Center ( C.E.T. ), that would work as a long term monitoring facility, to be able to perform complete environmental studies on related projects.
