A sustainable solution...
In collaboration with International Hemp Building Association (IHBA), we built our first hempcrete wall with Steve Allin in Feb. 2016 in Janakpur, Nepal (most likely the first one in Asia in modern times). To adapt to the local condition, we used bamboo structure to build the hemp wall.
Since 2016, we have been working extensively to adapt hempcrete to our climate and socio-economic conditions with local materials and skills calling it “SHIVCrete”.
We have used over 40,000 kg of wild cannabis stalks for our construction projects and until end of 2019 we have built 11,611 cu.ft. of hempcrete wall sequestering over 101,088 kg of CO2.
We provide a complete solution for natural construction incorporating hempcrete from planning to execution to final finishes.
