April 2021- Hempcrete Australia® is based in the Mornington Peninsula - Victoria.
- Contractor for Sprayed and Hand placed Hempcrete application (we use or supply the compatible hemp shiv & binders available on the market)
- Supply of construction grade Hemp shiv from Europe at competitive price – stock available.
- Build locally (only) comfortable and energy efficient building envelopes (new & alteration) using dominantly Hempcrete as insulation and other real sustainable materials. Registered Builder in Victoria - DB U 64000.
- Drafting detailing service for Hempcrete projects in preparation for a seamless construction process (3D, 2D, cad) for an even performant building.
- Detailing Assistance for Hempcrete house, for you, your Architect or Draftsperson to build confidence on construction details and good practice
"I'll assist any client at a fair cost with an honest and transparent approach to help to build better (efficient homes) using bio-based, renewable, recyclable materials"
- I have kids and I have concerns about our future; mother nature is collapsing. The capitalistic model only money driven will kill us all. I'm acting at a personal and professional level to tackle issues I can be helpful with.
- I have 25 years experience in the residential construction, a very strong technical background, innovation and R&D. “Hempcrete is by far the ultimate material !”. It does not burn (fire & bush-fires resistant), flood resistant (will dry out and not degrade), does not rot or mold, termites and insects resistant, create an airtight but highly breathable wall, cool down the house when it is hot outside and keep the temperature in the house when is is cold outside, fully recyclable at low cost, store a lot of carbon, low embodied energy to produce, a rustic and forgiving generous material.
- I'm also willing to participate to any serious collaborative projects involved in innovation, R&D, experimentation or socially responsible, Australia wide.
We give great respect to the creators of the original website and Hempcrete Australia® business who were visionaries and pioneers.
January 2021, another year gone! I ran out of time (again) to update the website.
Funny though, the website content (remember I took over Hempcrete Australia® in 2019) is still extremely relevant and information valid. Those founders were good!.
The facebook page Hempcrete Australia is not administrated by me, I've tried unsuccessfully to contact the person who administrate this "unofficial" FB page. Please help!
The SPRAYED APPLICATION is the technique mainly use at Hempcrete Australia®. This process uses a machine to blow hemp hurds and binder on the support. It is a high-performance, quick and cost-effective technique compared with manual installation.
Sprayed & Manual applications are both relevant and have relatively similar performance.
The manual technique (using form work and batch mix) is used is for internal finish, when walls are to remain exposed (for visual effects of pattern and color). The sprayed application delivers a rough finish surface and is effective for walls that are intended to be covered with a breathable render or lining.
In practice the sprayed application for a square meter of wall in 250mm is 40 to 50% more affordable than manual installation.

What is Hempcrete?
Hempcrete is a generic term for an old basic recipe of lime, hemp & water that has been used for decades in Europe for the restoration of old wattle & daub or cob construction. Unlike concrete or masonary, hempcrete does not crack severely under movement.
