Great book on a great and deep-green construction technology., 13 Jan. 2015
It is lovely to have book on Hempcrete written by people working with the material/technology day-in day-out. While great research material with some practical experience was available already in 2008 (Tom Woolley & Rachel Bevan), this book adds the experience of 5 years of working with the material on site. Book exposes number of potential pitfalls that without it I would be incapable of detecting. For an architect to read book written by a contractor gives an additional privilege to see the whole process trough before commencing design even at feasibility study. I greatly enjoyed abundance of good photos and hand sketches that illustrate the issues described. Book is well laid off and is pleasure to read.
After this read everyone should feel confident to embark on construction project with this deep-green technology.
