The project manager of Western Australia's first eco-village, partly built with hemp, believes the finished product will add weight to the growing
push for it to be widely used in the construction industry. Which could see it roll out into mainstream furniture manufacturing.
Tendering contracts are out for the construction of 12 dwellings, due to be built in the WA south coast town of Denmark, about four and half hours
from Perth. Project manager Paul Llewellyn said a key feature would be the combination of hemp hurd, the innards of the plant's stem, and lime, which is used to render the traditional timber frames.
