Build a home

that saves you money

A Greencore home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer – without the need for expensive heating and cooling systems.

This is possible thanks to the high thermal performance of the hemp-lime in our Biond building system.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Recent tests carried out by Bath University show that our hemp-lime panels have nearly 4 times the thermal inertia of a mineral wool insulated panel.

Hemp-lime: a natural, high-performance insulator

Hemp, which is now produced industrially in the UK and Europe, has been used for centuries to make ropes, canvas and paper. But when it’s mixed with lime it forms an unique insulation material with natural ‘phase change’ properties as well as locking up carbon.

That’s why it’s a great choice for house builders who demand high levels of energy-efficiency in a zero-carbon building material.

Why build with hemp-lime?

We use hemp-lime in our homes because it helps to:

  • Make expensive heating bills a thing of the past (our homes typically have energy bills of around £150-£300 per year, depending on design, size and fuel type)
  • Provide a comfortable living environment in all weathers
  • Give you a home that meets or exceeds Passivhaus energy efficiency standards
  • Eliminate thermal bridging and provide an airtight, yet comfortable home
