Pre-fabricated hemp building solutions will get special attention at this year’s 10th edition of the International Hemp Building Symposium, set for Lacapelle Marival, France, Oct. 11-12, 2022.
“We are showcasing solutions that can be mainstreamed to make hemp an alternative to the highly polluting conventional building industry,” said Steve Allin, IHBA Director.
Pre-fab hemp construction materials offer an alternative to the traditional infill building method in which forms are moved from one spot to another to create walls around a wooden frame. Several companies have developed such materials in blocks and panels, which are growing in popularity among hemp builders, Allin said
