Modern construction technology destroys our planet, but there is a working alternative: building with natural materials that preserve nature, provide a healthy living environment and are energy efficient. Barbali is a Bulgarian company that uses wood, staw, clay and many more to construct new homes and renovate old ones aiming at one goal: to give you cosiness and low bills, while saving the planet. Veselin Moskov, specialist-consultant in eco construction and project manager in Barbali LTD, shares more.

Why construction with natural materials is back in fashion in the 21st century?

Actually, these have been in fashion since ancient times. The only difference today is that many more people globally recognised their advantages and began to consider important topics such as energy efficiency, the health and comfort within one's home, and environment protection.

What are the benefits of this type of construction for the environment?

An important aspect of natural materials is reducing the carbon footprint. Conventional construction processes use a lot of energy for production; they pollute and emit a lot of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Eco construction focuses on more sustainable materials such as straw, wood, bamboo, reed, clay, hemp, sheep wool, cork, lime and many more with significantly smaller, and even negative carbon footprint. At the end of their life cycle they can be recycled and reused. Currently, many European countries are making steps towards tax incentives and lower mortgage rates for environmentally friendly construction and renovation. Such policies additionally help consumers to choose such construction materials and methods.

How can Barbali help us to make the most of natural materials in our home?

Barbali offers a diversity of solutions and systems for eco construction and renovation. We have years of experience in environmentally friendly construction and manage the whole process of building activities – from consulting our clients on selecting the right design and construction team, to the best construction materials and systems for them, to the contractors capable of building the home of their dreams. For several years now we have worked on building energy simulations. Soon, we are going to offer professional consultations and services in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) as well. LEED is the most widely used system for evaluation of environmentally friendly buildings in the world. LEED certification provides a frame for healthy, highly efficient and economical green buildings with environmental, social and management benefits.
