hurds are mixed with a combination of lime products to produce
a light weight, insulating, breathing material.
- The mixture of lime to hurds varies with the type of construction
application and prevailing climatic conditions.
- This hempcrete is
cast around a timber framework.
- This is achieved by tamping
down between shuttering, or it can be sprayed against a
formwork (permanent or temporary).
- Internally a variety of finishes are possible. In this example
the framework has been left exposed and the hempcrete finished
with a natural paint.
