Hemp And Lime House Achieves CSH Level 5
A recently developed green walling material, has helped to create a newbuild sustainable home in Hillingdon, London – as part of a pioneering council-run scheme to create high quality, affordable housing on disused garage sites.
|Designed by Paper Project architecture and design and built by Hill Partnerships (Western), the project forms part of a regeneration programme launched by the London Borough of Hillingdon in 2008 to convert underused spaces into affordable and sustainable housing. The four bedroom house is one of 47 homes that have already been redeveloped as part of this innovative scheme.
A key element in the construction was the use of hemcrete for the creation of highly insulated walls for the timber frame home – helping the building to achieve Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Developed by Lime Technology, Tradical® Hemcrete® is produced from UK grown hemp and a lime binder, absorbing CO2 in the hemp growing. It is ideal for the construction of thermally efficient and cost effective homes.
