“Modcell™ was developed to enable straw bale insulation concepts to be easily incorporated by builders on a much grander scale. At Modcell™ we are very committed to sustainable design. What is especially interesting about this design concept is that each panel is assembled as near possible to the building site.
“We find a local farmer who has suitable straw bales, rent a nearby barn where we assemble the panels. The frames are flat packed and put together in the barn; they are then filled with straw bales and a lime render applied. This method of production means that the panels are using locally sourced materials and saves on expensive and environmentally damaging transport costs and the need for a central depot. It also provides a much needed income source for farmers”….. Via University of West England
