Upcoming AHMC Workshop Gold Coast 23 & 24 September 2017

Our next workshop for Builders, Owner Builders, Architects and Building Designers will be on 23 & 24 September on the Gold Coast Qld, at Rockcote’s Showroom in Indy Court Nerang.    The workshop will cover all aspects of working with hempcrete in the building industry.

The main focus  will be on new residential construction and retrofitting to improve energy efficiency or acoustics. However use in commercial construction and restoration work (where the material excels because of its capacity to manage moisture well) will also be  covered briefly.  Critical design details are discussed. 

From our perspective, attending one of our workshops is the beginning of an ongoing client relationship and we provide advice as needed to ensure successful projects. AHMC has supplied materials and worked with hemp builders and designers in multiple Australian climate zones and the workshops share our experience from that.

The workshops are hands on because learning to mix the Hemp lime material well is critical, as is having an understanding of the options for formwork, framing and finishing. You’ll also learn the techniques for installing, to ensure that the outcome is good thermal and acoustic performance combined with a beautiful finish, as well as understand the curing process.
