A whole range of sustainable building products are currently being made from all parts of the hemp plant for use in restoration and new build projects.

- Hemp construction uses renewable crop-based materials which absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) as they grow.

- Hempcrete walls provide all the insulation the building needs.
- Floor and roof insulation can also be achieved with the hemp lime biocomposite.

- Hempcrete provides carbon neutral, low energy, highly insulated structures and is suitable for both new build or      refurbishment.
- Hempcrete is simply hemp shiv combined with natural lime and water as binding agents. 
- Hempcrete buildings are also flexible and crack resistant, visually attractive. 

- Hemp construction uses renewable crop-based materials which have absorbed carbon dioxide.
