PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Founded in 2003, we have developed a simple, low environmental impact, cost effective construction method. Using industrial hemp fiber and chips, we create lightweight fiber-reinforced concrete to build strong, energy efficient and beautiful structures. Our Mission is to create Homes for Everyone; high end showpieces, community structures to low cost housing alternatives.
