Strawbale Design

Designing a green building is more sophisticated than simply checking off points in a L.E.E.D. certification form. While the L.E.E.D. rating is a good first step, it cannot (nor is it intended to) substitute for comprehensive green building strategies. I.S.I. has developed and patented a strawbale construction system called the Spar Membrane Structure (SMS) that produces a building with unparalleled energy performance, comfort and durability. Green building design is about making buildings that fit with and harmonize with the surrounding landscape, buildings that last hundreds of years, and buildings that are efficient in their use of our natural resources.
