Prefabricated straw bale construction systems use a natural, low carbon, renewable product, providing high levels of thermal insulation. This modular approach appeals to the creative side of architects and can make life much easier for builders.   ModCell® is an example of a UK system that uses these excellent thermal insulation qualities of straw and timber to make prefabricated straw panels for schools and other buildings.

The Passive House standard, as promoted by the Passive House Institute (PHI) achieves highly energy efficient buildings whose demand for heating and cooling energy can be reduced by as much as 90% compared to conventional builds. This is achieved using an envelope-first approach and considers the five principles of Passive House: airtightness, high-quality windows, climate-applicable insulation, avoidance of thermal bridges and sufficient ventilation.
