New Village in Scotland Builds Houses with Hemp
A new sustainable housing project in the northwest of Scotland will feature industrial hemp as a main building material, reports Green Building Press.
The eco-friendly material is the main component of a pre-fabricated wall system called Hempbuild – a mixture of the plant’s woody core and a lime-based binder. The system was supplied by Hemcrete Projects, an English housing company that specializes in hemp-based construction. So far, two prototype houses have been completed in the Achabeag township, both with very different designs.
