Farley New Build, Scottish Highlands

UK Hempcrete were engaged to assist with the technical design and hempcrete installation for this unique new build family home. The most striking element of this project are the gothic style arched glulam primary roof trusses, which have been left exposed internally to great effect. To aid in reducing the construction time, we specified an interior layer of precast hempcrete blocks, with a generous outer layer of cast hempcrete. This hybrid system allows for the immediate lime plastering of the interior hempcrete walls, removing the need to wait for the hempcrete to dry, as with the site cast option.

New Build Hempcrete House, Derbyshire

A 3 storey large detached family hempcrete home, which was recently completed in late 2021. The initial design was by others, with UK Hempcrete providing consultancy, site training and material supply, as well as the UKH construction team finishing off the timber frame and Hempcrete works for the client, and lime rendering it.

Natural Building Store, our online shop front, supplied bio-based products such as wood fibre boards and Thermafleece Cosy Wool.
