Hemp Walls



Hemp shiv is mixed with lime to form a bio-composite material often referred to as “hempcrete”. The hemp and lime is cast between temporary shutters around a timber frame to form a solid external or internal wall.

A hemp and lime wall offers good insulation values, thermal mass and carbon storage.
