What is Hempcrete?

  • It is a fibre reinforced lightweight concrete; hemp hurd and fiber, lime, sand, clay, 2% cement.
  • Process: mixed and poured into forms, then plastered with our proprietary natural plaster and finally, coloured with mineral pigments.
  • The bio-composite material stores energy quickly and then releases it in response to a room’s fluctuations in temperatures.
  • The high-efficiency envelope thermal mass hemp walls “breathe” and regulate moisture.
