The Straw Bale Building Company
abn 33123 519 562
Michael (that's me) is an experienced and practising Civil Engineer, with background in both Civil and Structural Engineering.
I have developed an interest in building methods that utilise traditional and more renewable materials and resources, introducing options and choices to an industry which in my opinion, has become "bogged down with orthodox and inpersonal conventions, lacking in user - friendliness"
Straw bale building is my personal favorite - coupled with solar design principles, there is very little to compare with the old world charm and character of a well built straw bale house
In November 1999,I was awarded a special commendation for Ecologically Sustainable Building by the Sunshine Coast Environment Council for my:
"energy,commitment and outstanding contribution to the environment".
