Hempcrete Construction

In 2016, we embarked on an exciting project in collaboration with the International Hemp Building Association (IHBA) to bring hempcrete construction to the forefront in Nepal. Our goal was to build the first hempcrete wall in Asia using local raw materials like hemp, hydrated lime, and bamboo.

With guidance from Steve Allin, a prominent figure in the hemp building industry, we were able to successfully construct the wall and jumpstart our journey into the world of hempcrete construction. Over the years, we have adapted to local building techniques and utilized the skills of local artisans and craftsmen to create sustainable solutions and products.

Our efforts have helped to re-introduce bamboo, hemp, clay, and lime construction as a modern and sustainable way of living in Nepal. To make this a reality, we have established a sustainable supply chain with local villagers and small suppliers to ensure the availability of raw materials and the technical know-how necessary to build with hemp.

Working with clients, architects, builders, engineers, masons, and local communities, we have been able to construct a wide range of structures in various climatic and social conditions, including the Langtang regions at an altitude of 4000m. Our supply chain and training program for building hempcrete houses offer our customers the chance to live in naturally insulated, toxin-free homes, free from harmful chemicals often used in construction.

Building a high-performance home using only your own hands, local resources, and community collaboration has revolutionized the concept of sustainable construction practices.
