Hemp Building - CANADA
St. Agathe, Manitoba
Hemp Oil Canada
Hemp Technologies partnered with Hemp Oil Canada to build their office extension at their food processing facility in Ste. Agathe, Manitoba June 2010.
This was a simple build with double stick 2x4 framing, encased with hemp-lime and steel forms clad to the exterior for weather protection.
Ministry of Housing
Hemp Technologies designed this passive solar house to be built in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Spring 2012. Plans have changed a bit since this first sketch but the Ministry of Housing and Development in Winnipeg have started ground works on a 2 story house in the city of Winnipeg, Canada, to be named the ”Madera House” after our dear friend, David, who passed away July 2012
-36 degrees Celsius…..brrrr it’s cold there. That’s why they’re doing 18” thick Hempcrete walls.
Aldergrove, British Columbia
Ian and Cathy Finley moved to Vancouver, Canada 6 years ago from England and have built their sustainable permaculture farm from scratch using around 70% reclaimed and salvaged materials and embracing green technologies.
They grow everything from arugula to zucchini” AND raise animals – pigs, chickens, sheep and goats - all on their five acres. It's all Organic but not "certified", a somewhat contentious issue for discussion that still remains unclear - more on that another time :)
After a devastating house fire Ian, Cathy and family have begun building a new house of Hemp. We will help by running an onsite workshop mid January, 2018 to help them get Hempcrete installed in their new house - even if it is Winter in Canada !!
