Ecobuild 2017, ASBP and Build It Live North West
With a busier-than-ever year ahead of us, UK Hempcrete is currently in the thick of the show season. If you missed us at ASBP ‘Healthy Buildings’ conference, and Build It Live North West, catch us at Ecobuild (7-9 March). We’ll be casting hempcrete into a timber frame and showing our pre-cast blocks, alongside friends from the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) on stand G140. We’ll also be on the Natural Building Materials stand, with other eco-builders and architects specialising in natural materials.
It was great to be on the UK Hempcrete stand – and speaking – at the ASBP (Alliance for Sustainable Building Products) ‘Healthy Buildings’ event. Twenty plus lectures during the day stressed the importance of healthy buildings, the industry’s failure to achieve this up till now, and the key role of natural building materials in creating such buildings. All the lecture slides can be downloaded here with further resources here
Build It Live, North West
Two weeks ago, again with the CAT team, we were on the floor at Build It Live North West in Manchester. A much smaller show than Ecobuild, but none the worse for that, it was great to see how much interest there was amongst visitors from the North West in the thermal, vapour permeability and carbon sequestration benefits of hempcrete.
HCB blocks from UK Hempcrete – ASBP Product of the Month!
UK Hempcrete’s pre-cast HCB hempcrete block was ASBP product of the month in February. Examples of our blocks and the other natural building materials we supply will be on show at Ecobuild 2017 (7–9 March). Find us at stand G140. Illustrations of our construction projects will be on show and can also be seen on our gallery.
