EP 3 - Building with hemp a way of the future
Building with hemp a way of the future
In this episode I am excited to be interviewing Klara Marosszeky who is the Managing Director of the Australian Hemp Masonry Company, Australia’s lead organisation in hemp building materials research. The company sources hemp from Australian farmers, manufacturers that are BCA-compliant Australian hemp building materials in Sydney. They supply hemp building materials to more than 180 construction projects across all states, including two commercial projects.
Homes using the company’s products have won the 2018 Housing Industry Association National GreenSmart Award, several Master Builders Awards and several sustainable design awards.
Klara is also a qualified educator, delivering training in hemp building for builders, owner builders, as well as advising architects and building designers. She’s been involved with hemp fibre farming since 1999 and with hemp construction research since 2000.
Her work has included supporting the development of a mobile hemp processing unit that she believes has the potential to transform where and how hemp building materials are processed for the Australian market.
Klara has also provided Beaming Green with a list of recommended builders and architects in Northern NSW, this information will be on our website under episode three.
