Training + Workshops
Resolute Construction Solutions is dedicated to making affordable, sustainable, healthy homes. While researching the best materials to achieve these aims, nothing compared to hempcrete. Hempcrete is made from two of the most renewable and sustainable materials on the planet; hemp and lime. Both products store and absorb tonnes of CO2.
We have a passion to turn more building projects into sustainable building projects and we cannot do that alone. If you are a builder or architect we will help you incorporate hempcrete into your existing offerings so you can start to include this material in your practice.
Our exclusive training program and workshops will begin to establish you as a hemp building contractor with an immersive hemp building experience.

Why learn about hempcrete?
Hempcrete is made by mixing the hurd (the core of the hemp plant), natural air lime and water. This solution can be mechanically sprayed onto temporary or permanent cladding, or poured into formwork, lightly compacted, and then allowed to cure for approximately 6 weeks before rendering/sealing with a permeable, water resistant lime render.
Hempcrete walls are generally 200-350mm thick and contain millions of tiny air pockets. These air pockets provide excellent thermal properties, allow the wall to breath which helps reduce VOC build-up in the home, and regulate humidity by absorbing and releasing moisture as required. Hempcrete is also pest, fire and mould resistant.
Aside from the benefits hempcrete offers homeowners, hemp absorbs carbon both during the growing process and when it’s combined with lime to make hempcrete. Hempcrete contains no chemicals or additives and so will not contaminate the surrounding environment or your home.
In fact, hempcrete will absorb carbon dioxide from inside your home, store the carbon and release the oxygen…just like a living tree.
“Industrial hemp is a very useful plant. I challenged the attorney general to get rid of the criminal stigma associated with hemp so we can look at it in terms of how it might be useful.”
