Our first prototype building using hemp stalk as the primary structure is in the pipeline. We plan to grow the hemp from seed, harvest the final crop, dry it, then use it to construct a building all on the same plot of land. The main structure of the building will literally come from the ground that it is build on. You cannot get much more local than that when it comes to building materials. The exact details of the design and construction are still in early development but we are hoping to plant the crop this year so preparation on the plot of land will start soon. Hemp has a growing season of approximately 4-5 months in the UK so we will be reaping the rewards of the land by August by which point we will be ready to build. The building, currently proposed to be an art studio, will put some of our most recent innovations in hemp stalk construction to the test in a real life situation.
