Whether you're interested as a potential client, or would like to learn the basics of the NV technique, you will find here a summary of the information about our standardised and simplified version of the ancient Nubian Vault technique.

AVN is not a construction company, and neither builds nor sells NV houses: our role is to promote the concept through providing training, support, and networking, with a view to developing a self-sustaining market in NV construction in sub-Saharan Africa.
