It is debatable among the construction professionals whether contemporary stabilised earth construction is beneficial in urban low cost housing. Existing literature recorded a lot of benefits and drawbacks from construction professionals, which is empirically substantiated. But there are drawbacks found in the literature that seemingly are conflicting, and construction professionals are divided in their opinion. This paper seeks to address these conflicts and division by validating the controversial drawbacks of contemporary stabilised earth construction in urban low cost housing.
