Hempcrete is an eco-friendly solution to building.
Hempcrete, also known as Hemp + Lime, is a bio-composite building material that combines the inner woody core of the industrial hemp plant with a lime-based binder.
While not utilized as a structural or load-bearing element, Hempcrete serves as an insulating infill between frame members, although it has been recognized to reduce racking. All structural loads are supported by internal framing.
We work with fair & sustainably practicing farmers and processors in the United States and Canada to provide hemp core to building grade specification.
From the earth and into your home.
Bound By Earth.
The importance of hempcrete binder can never be underestimated and our products were carefully selected and tested to create long lasting biocomposites that are resilient, healthy, and high performing.
Hempitecture uses a specifically formulated mineral based binder that is ideal for bonding hemp core both in spray applied and cast in place methods.
Carbon Dioxide Absorbing.
We believe your walls should not just keep you comfortable, they should help clean the environment.
The materials used to create hempcrete biocomposites absorb CO2 during the curing process. Additionally, CO2 is absorbed and offset during the life cycle of the industrial hemp plant. Few decisions in your construction program can take as much carbon out of the atmosphere as deciding to build with hempcrete.

We've sourced the best materials in the world, so you don't have to.
Hempitecture is the first company in the US to have its' hemp lime formulation tested to the rigors of ASTM E84. This fire resistance test proved conclusively that our material is fireproof.
In fact, on a scale of 0-450, with 450 being extremely flammable, our samples scored 0 for flame spread and smoke developed. To learn more, view the report.
