Hembuild, UK
Bringing zero-carbon buildings one step closer

With fantastic thermal properties and ability to stabilise humidity, hemp mixed with lime to create hempcrete has been used in sustainable building construction for many years. But until now it has always been cast on-site, giving it limited commercial appeal.

‘Hembuild’ panels are made-to-measure off-site, then arrive at building sites ready to be slotted together like a jigsaw puzzle to form the building’s walls. Aside from making the use of hempcrete economically viable for builders, building users can revel in their superior eco-credentials, a comfortable environment – and lower bills.

(Hembuild was formerly known as Hemcrete Projects, but is no longer trading.)
