Dachverband Lehm e.V.  
  In a time in which environmental responsibility is becoming increasingly important, conservation of resources and environmentally sound construction methods are gaining in significance.

Today there is a demand for building materials which require little energy for their production, which are always recyclable and hygienically safe, and which also offer scope for creative design – modern building materials such as earth.
The “Dachverband Lehm e.V.” was established in 1992 as an association to promote the culture of building with earth and to represent all those interested or working in the field. Today we are the internationally recognised representative in Germany for clay and earth building. Our work in establishing technical building regulations, the “Lehmbau Regeln”, and our vocational training programme “Specialist for Building with Earth”, recognised by the Chamber of Trade and Commerce, are exemplary in Germany.

The “Dachverband Lehm e.V.” lives from the input and commitment of its members. We are recognised as a non-profit organisation and are the primary forum for technical know-how and practical skills and experience in the field. A forum for the exchange of information and ideas between manufacturers, the trade, architects, academics and clients and all others who work with clay and earth.
