ModCell is one of the first products to make large-scale, carbon-negative building a commercial reality. The system utilises the excellent thermal insulation qualities of straw bale and hemp construction to form prefabricated panels.
The panels allow super-insulated, high-performance, low energy ‘passive’ buildings to be built using renewable, locally sourced, carbon sequestering, sustainable building materials.
The product is designed for use in offices, schools, housing and commercial buildings.
Manufactured offsite the wall and roof cladding system can be quickly and efficiently installed, creating buildings with thermal performance up to three times higher than the current building regulations require.
This super-insulated system, combined with our airtight details, means that buildings constructed using ModCell panels meet the demanding PassivHaus specification. As a result, buildings can have zero heat requirements, saving money and CO2 emissions.
We constructed The House That Kevin Built for Channel 4’s Grand Designs using Modcell panels. Over a five day period at London’s Excel Exhibition Centre the innovative house used a range of cutting edge building technologies and materials.
The whole event was televised live on Channel 4’s Grand Designs Live with a number of celebrities helping at various construction stages.
