Aerecura is an established team of experienced, creative craftspeople deeply inspired by the principles of sustainability.

Since 2009, our mission has been to bring the unique beauty, comfort and energy efficiency of rammed earth walls to Southern Ontario. We take pride in the proficiency and artistry of our team and our high-quality, high-performance rammed earth walls and homes. 


Sylvia Cook, Principal

Sylvia is a former high school physics teacher with a passion for sustainability and a desire to create beautiful, natural homes. In 2009, that passion led Sylvia to create Aerecura Rammed Earth Builders, the first rammed earth building company in Ontario. 

A decade later, Sylvia has helped bring rammed earth to the forefront of sustainable building in Ontario. She has appeared on on CBC's Disrupting Design and had her rammed earth home featured in The Globe and Mail. Sylvia welcomes the opportunity to share her knowledge on sustainable buildings in class and conference settings, and is available upon request.


Graham Cavalier, project manager

Graham has been Aerecura's lead project manager since our first project in 2009. 

In 2015, Graham's dedication to construction methods that employ techniques to minimize adverse environmental impacts and reduce energy consumption led him to complete a Masters in Sustainable Building through York University's Environmental Studies program. 

Graham is inspired to make a bright future for his daughter Juniper by working to create a truly sustainable built environment.
