Much more than just a Hempcrete construction company…
A natural building company with a difference, UK Hempcrete specialises in the use of Hempcrete (or ‘hemp-lime’) alongside other natural materials. We use these low impact materials in both new build construction projects and the repair and upgrading of traditional and historic buildings.
With a wealth of in-house expertise and knowledge, UK Hempcrete offers a range of services to suit your needs, whether your project is a new build ‘future-proofed’ natural home, or the repair and upgrading of a listed building. Our team has a passion for low impact building and the upgrading of traditional, historic buildings using eco-friendly, sustainable materials.
Building on the success of our first natural building company Hemp-LimeConstruct formed in 2008, UK Hempcrete takes the story forward, extending and developing the range of services we offer alongside our core construction work.
UK Hempcrete Director Alex Sparrow is recognised as one of the UK’s leading advisers in the use of Hempcrete, regularly speaking at conferences and events, writing articles and hosting training days. Hemp-LimeConstruct’s builds have been featured in numerous magazines and books, so be sure to watch this space!
Alex co-wrote The Hempcrete Book: Designing and building with hemp-lime, published in October 2014 by Green Books, which has been widely acknowledged as the definitive guide to the use of cast-on-site Hempcrete in construction.
