UK Hempcrete


A natural building company with a difference, UK Hempcrete specializes in the use of hempcrete (or “hemp-lime”) alongside other natural and low-impact materials in both new build construction projects and the repair and upgrading of traditional and historic buildings.

With a wealth of in house expertise and knowledge, whether your project is a new build “future-proofed” natural home, or the repair and upgrading of a listed building, UK Hempcrete offers a range of services to suit your needs. Our team has a passion for low impact building and the repair and upgrading of traditional and historic buildings using natural, sustainable materials.

Building on the success of our first natural building company Hemp-LimeConstruct, formed in 2008, UK Hempcrete takes the story forward, extending and developing the range of services we are offer alongside our core construction work.

UK Hempcrete Director Alex Sparrow is recognized as one of the UK’s leading advisors in the use of hempcrete, regularly speaking at conferences and events and writing articles, and Hemp-LimeConstruct’s builds have been featured in magazines and books.

Alex co-wrote The Hempcrete Book: Designing and building with hemp-lime, published in October 2014 by Green Books, which has been widely acknowledged as the definitive guide to the use of cast-on-site hempcrete in construction.
