AHMC weekend workshops are for Builders, Owner Builders, Architects and Building Designers and cover all aspects of working with hempcrete in the building industry.
The main focus is 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.
AHMC has been involved in the Australian Hemp construction industry and R & D for 20 years. Over the past 3 years we have supplied BCA compliant Hemp building materials and worked with hemp builders and designers and with owner builders, on 150+ residential construction projects in all Australian states. Our workshops share this experience. Builds using our materials have also won quite a number of significant Australian building and design awards in the past 2 years.
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; the requirements for framing; the techniques for installing to ensure that the outcome is both beautiful and provides optimal thermal and acoustic performance; understanding how to manage the curing process and knowing about optional finishes.
You will also receive all of the resources needed to supply to your building certifier to ensure approval of your hemp building project.
Morning and afternoon tea/coffee and lunch are also included each day in the $660 (incl gst) pp workshop fee. There’s an opportunity to let us know about any specific dietary or other health related needs on the Workshop registration form.
Builders and Architects can use the workshop and supporting resources to qualify for CPD points. Please talk to us about this.
