Hybrid Methods

What is a Hybrid Method?

A hybrid method of construction is a term for integrating conventional construction with alternative.  I often tell clients that it does not have to be ‘either’ ‘or’, we can find ways to mix and match.

A well-designed, fully-integrated building is one which fully incorporates the client’s end goals and utilizes the resources they have available.

Some examples of hybrid systems can include:

  • stud framing + cellulose insulation + natural plaster finishes
  • stud framing + light straw clay insulation + wood siding
  • Timber frame structure + strawbale
  • Compressed earth block + rigid insulation + rainscreen siding
  • Rammed earth south & west walls + stud walls with insulation north & east walls

You get the picture!

Low-carbon building solutions means analyzing all aspects of the project and creating the best solution.
