We are a carbon capture company; our bi-product is high performing and healthy homes!
We are passionate about building with hempcrete for two simple reasons, firstly it has huge environmental benefits, and secondly it’s ability to wrap your home in a naturally insulating breathable blanket.
We passionately believe building materials should be good for your health, good for the planet’s health and perform extremely well.
The inspiration for creating the Hemp Block Company came from listening to two separate features on the radio. The first was on Radio Five Live, which was talking about how to reduce the amount of carbon currently in the atmosphere, and specifically creating machines that capture carbon (which hemp does naturally) and the other item was on Radio 2, discussing the current housing shortage in the UK. The answer to us was obvious, why not build more properties using hempcrete.
Having worked with hempcrete for a number of years we have now decided to create the Hemp Block Company to promote hempcrete to a wider audience. Hempcrete blocks are the most accessible and easiest to use form of this incredible material.
We have partnered with Senini, Europe’s leading manufacturer of hempcrete blocks, to bring you extremely high quality and affordable blocks that contain only hydrated lime and hemp shiv. They are the most natural hempcrete blocks available.
As well as having the backing and know-how of Senini behind us, our Technical Director William Stanwix, has over 12 years of experience designing, building and manufacturing with hempcrete and is co-author of The Hempcrete Book.
