Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is your load bearing hemp block system superior to traditional concrete?

A: Our load bearing hempcrete block system is superior to concrete in three main ways.

Firstly, it reduces construction time by up to 60%. The blocks interlock (without the use of a motor), are then reinforced and rendered.

Secondly, hempcrete is a more efficient temperature regulator that keeps buildings cool in summer and warmer in winter reducing the overall reliance on ongoing temperature control.

Finally, hempcrete blocks are safer as they’re both termite and fire-resistant.

Q: Are HBA hempcrete blocks manufactured in Australia?

A: At this time, HBA blocks are manufactured in France and we are the sole distributor across Australasia. We are in the process to manufacture and distribute directly from Australia.

Q: How long does it take to ship blocks to Australia?

A: Current shipping time is approximately six weeks.

Q: What is the construction time of hempcrete blocks?

A: Construction time is only 10 minutes per square meter!

Q: What is the process?

A: Once you’re ready to proceed, contact us to discuss your specific project.

We can provide an integrated architecture and engineering service that begins with basic design concepts, or we can work within your current design. Once we know the specific requirements of your building project, we’ll provide a detailed quote including delivery to the building site.

Q: How do you know hempcrete is the best building material?

A: Founder, Johan, has been working in the construction industry for 30 years with 10 of those years working with hempcrete. Hempcrete has been tested in Europe for eight years and with strong global connections, he has seen firsthand the success of building projects that use hempcrete as the main source of building block. Johan is also a director of Australian Industrial Hemp Innovations and an active member of Australian Industrial Hemp Alliance. Johan has previously been director of Hempcrete Australia providing technical solutions and training throughout the country.

Q: Do you supply other hemp products?

A: Yes! On request, we can also supply other hemp products such as hemp insulation bats and hemp wooden flooring. Get in touch to find out more.
