Technical Notebook Straw – Cahier Technique Biosources – la Paille

Written by esba

EN: This guide is intended for construction professionals. Architects, engineers and builders will find in it the information they need to carry out their straw building projects. This guide supports and completes the French professional rules for straw construction CP2012. They have regulatory value in France but are also widely used in Belgium as a reference guide. This technical booklet provides technical information, tools, documentary resources and methods that can be used in all phases of your projects, from the design stage to acceptance. The regulatory and normative references are specific to Belgium and France. The Belgian public will also find a summary of the practices and customs that diverge from French practices as well as the regulatory and normative equivalences between the French DTU and the Belgian NIT and STS.
