Hempcrete Basics at Yestermorrow Design/Build School
Take a deep dive into the rich world of carbon-beneficial materials and help lead our industry in responsible design and construction solutions. Hempcrete is a biocomposite material created from the woody core of the hemp plant combined with a lime-based binder. Trusted around the world as a robust, high-performance sustainable building system, Hempcrete entered the US market a decade ago and is poised to take the industry by storm. Hempcrete has become a worldwide sensation because it’s fireproof, mold and pest resistant, and passively regulates internal moisture and temperature. Hempcrete sequesters carbon earn the technical and performance characteristics, demystify how to specify and construct with this proven material, and join a growing community of radically responsible industry stewards.
Taught by Jennifer Martin, Tom Rossmassler, Bob Escher, AIA, Alex Escher.
