Abstract: An Eco-Friendly new construction methodology supporting high market feasibility. A new construction methodology is developed by using wood and straw bale as the main raw material as an alternate to cement products. By doing so, anyone can own a building within a matter of hours since it facilitates lower cost estimation apart from being eco-friendly and possessing a longer lifetime. The thermal performance ranking is also very high. After subjecting straw bale into several tests including load bearing, thermal behaviour, life cycle assessment and energy performance, straw bale construction is found to be the best solution where wood provides additional strength to the building.
