The Eco Pods are designed using passive house principles, with high u-values, air tightness and low thermal bridging. This means that there shall be very low energy demand and associated running costs.
The main materials used for construction are Wood and Straw. These are natural, photosynthetic materials which have sequestered huge amounts of CO2 during their lifecycle. Carbon-capturing materials like these are the future of the Construction Industry and demonstrate how we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and help combat the Climate Crisis.
Straw insulation has fantastic Acoustic and Moisture Control properties. This creates excellent indoor environments which include:
