hemp wall

Hempcrete is relatively new to Australia with less than 50 houses using this sustainable building material in the whole country. Not only does it come from a renewable resource, using the stem of the hemp plant, but it provides a much healthier home due to it’s high breathability.

  • good thermal and acoustic insulation
  • breathable walls avoiding moisture build-up which prevents mould
  • high fire resistance
  • termite resistant
  • non-toxic and no off-gassing
  • sequesters C02
  • some thermal mass
  • no landfill waste during construction or at end of life
