According to an article in the Spanish language newspaper El Heraldo of Chihuahua, Mexico on January 11, 2010, a Mexican affiliate of the CalEarth Institute has just started construction of a demonstration “Superadobe” structure. This will become the Nutrition Rehabilitation Center for the Municipality of Guachochi, Chihuahua,  the first  prototype in the state of Chihuahua. It will serve as both a demonstration and a shelter for women who have just given birth to their babies in  the eco-room.

The engineer is Mr. Quintana, a graduate of  the University of Chihuahua  and he will coordinate the construction work.  The mayor of Guachochi announced plans to build a hundred houses in a subdivision of the mountain city, with this superadobe technique.
