Hempcrete Wall Systems




4 Weeks


About the Course

Course Description: Hempcrete Wall Systems

This course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of hempcrete wall systems, an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional building materials. Participants will learn about the benefits of using hempcrete in building and construction, as well as the design, construction, and finishing techniques for creating high-performance hempcrete walls.

The course will cover the following topics:

  1. Introduction to Hempcrete Wall Systems

    • The benefits of using hempcrete in building and construction

    • The environmental impact of traditional building materials

    • The different types of hempcrete wall systems

  2. Properties and Performance

    • The thermal performance of hempcrete walls

    • The moisture control and breathability of hempcrete walls

    • The fire resistance and structural properties of hempcrete walls

  3. Design and Construction Techniques

    • The design principles and considerations for creating hempcrete walls

    • The materials and tools needed for construction

    • The construction techniques for creating hempcrete walls

  4. Finishing and Maintenance

    • The different finishing options for hempcrete walls

    • The maintenance requirements for hempcrete walls

    • The repair and restoration of hempcrete walls

  5. Applications and Future Developments

    • The potential applications for hempcrete wall systems

    • The future developments and innovations in hempcrete technology

The course will include lectures, hands-on activities, and group discussions to help participants gain a comprehensive understanding of hempcrete wall systems. Participants will also have the opportunity to work with hempcrete and other natural materials to create their own wall panels.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have a strong understanding of the properties and performance of hempcrete wall systems, as well as the design, construction, and finishing techniques. Participants will be well-equipped to apply this knowledge in their own building and construction projects and contribute to the growing field of sustainable building practices.
