For the reconstruction of an old wooden building in Steinen, Schwyz, a homogeneous rammed earth floor was installed in cooperation of abc on maur bau company AG and LEHMAG AG.
In the production hall in Brunnen, the clay mixture was produced in the desired shade from local materials and then transported a few kilometers to Steinen. After a short mixing process on site, the material was installed, then dried and finally treated or sealed. As a result of the grinding and subsequent sealing, some stone components are visible and some of the soil remains homogeneous in the excavated color.
