by Urban Ecology
At Urban Ecology we seek to use entrepreneurship to drive increased utilization and awareness in the areas of green architecture (specifically mudbrick technology) and water conservation. Towards this goal, we primarily focus on three activities:
I C S E B
We manufacture and supply the building blocks of sustainable architecture - strong, durable and high quality Interlocking Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks.
DESIGN & BUILD
Our team of skilled architects have expertise in designing building and spaces that are in harmony with the environment. We offer both design and construction services.
We manufacture and market Rainmax Rainwater Harvesting Filters – the most effective, affordable, easy-to-use solution for rooftop rainwater harvesting.
Sustainable architecture seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings through improved process efficiency, alternative building materials and moderation in the use of materials, energy, development space and the ecosystem at large.
Stabilized earth architecture uses earthen materials stabilized with binders and pressure for enhanced durability, i.e. higher compressive strength and increased water resistance. Urban Ecology seeks to drive sustainability in architecture through the manufacture, utilization and supply of Earth blocks (a.k.a. mud bricks). The benefits of Stabilized earth architecture are many.
Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB) are high quality, earth-based building materials made by compressing the carefully proportioned mix of soil, sand, minimal cement and/or lime. This type of mudbrick facilitates building higher with thinner walls, since they have much better compressive strength and water resistance. Our Interlocking CSEB are constructively designed with special moulds to lock into each other without the use of mortar. The ICSEB manufactured by Urban Ecology have high durability, abrasive resistance and compressive strength ranging from 6.79 – 8.77 N/mm². They are available in 2 sizes – 6” and 9”.

We have carefully curated the process for the manufacture of our ICSEB. The first step involves mixing soil, sand and minimal cement in precisely calibrated proportions. In the second step this mixture is compressed into earth blocks using special machinery. This is followed by a curing process which is crucial for strengthening the block. The final step is stacking for storage and a final curing process. Please do watch the video below to understand this process better.
Contemporary design focused on aesthetic and functional harmony with the surrounding environment. Using traditional earthen building materials by reengineering them for the modern era.
Solve your water problems with Rainmax’s Filters – the most effective, affordable, easy-to-use solution for rooftop rainwater harvesting.
It collects rainwater from rooftop and filters it through a fine 100-micron stainless steel 304 mesh and our first flush system, removing dust leaves contaminants and other debris. The resulting clean water is stored in a tank, and recharges groundwater or your borewell. As a result, you save money spent on water tankers.
