Why build your dreams with Strawtec?

When you invest with Strawtec you will benefit from a number of important aspects. Our Strawtec Values.

Firstly, you will receive the personal involvement of a Strawtec director who will be in charge of all areas of your contracted project.

Secondly, you will have the benefit of our experience and research in straw bale construction technology gained over the last 30 years and with our 280 straw bale projects.

This experience includes:

  • Guild member degree (Germany, 1984)
  • Study at the University of Alternative Building Technology (Germany,1987)
  • Supervisor for passive active solar techniques at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), (New Delhi, India, 1989-90)

Thirdly, you have our commitment to early and frequent communication between Strawtec, yourselves and your engineer and architect.  These early detailed discussions will enable us to develop a plan best suited to your particular architectural and financial requirements.

Fourthly, as a professional building company specialising in straw bale technology since 1997 we have kept up to date with the latest straw bale construction techniques. We conduct  our own research and keep our finger on the pulse with any international straw bale research. Strawtec attends many international conferences – the most recent being the European Straw Bale Gathering in Paris, France Sept 2015 and we will soon attend the International Straw Bale Conference in Methven, NZ in March 2016. Frank Thomas will be a guest speaker at both events.

This is what one of our customers has to say of our services;

“Just a note of thanks for your assistance with the construction of my new straw bale house in Hornsby, New South Wales. Your advice, assistance, knowledge and professional approach was invaluable in helping me complete the construction of the building, with a material and with techniques that I was not entirely familiar with. My family and I feel our new home is magnificent. Thermally and acoustically the straw walls are performing well and the finish of the render both internally and externally looks both unique and wonderful. You and your team have done a great job.

I have no hesitation in providing a reference for you to any future clients and indeed hope that we can work together again on another project.”
