The Hemp Building Company is a ‘green’ building business with a difference. We are specialists in the use of hemp-lime (also known as hempcrete) for building smart, energy efficient residential and commercial spaces. As licensed builders specialising in hempcrete we provide a complete range of hemp-lime building services including building, consulting, hands-on workshop training opportunities for both the enthusiast and the professional wanting to become part of this exciting new and emerging industry. We also supply premium, certified materials specifically formulated for hempcrete structures.
Hemp is a remarkable plant with outstanding sustainability credentials. During its rapid growing cycle hemp absorbs substantial levels of carbon dioxide. When you build with hempcrete, you are actively storing carbon for the life of that building whilst creating a high performing monolithic thermal wall system which has the ability to both insulate and store heat, thereby reducing or eliminating heating & cooling needs.
As licensed builders specialising in hemp-lime building education, we can provide you with a complete range of hemp-lime building services tailored to your needs.
Whether you are an architect, builder, entrepreneur or owner builder, we will guide you through the relevant design and structural issues specific to hemp-lime building to make sure that your project addresses the technical specifications required to meet Building Regulations. We will work with you through the intricacies of hemp-lime building to ensure the success of your build and to help you avoid costly mistakes.
