Hempcrete Block Housing
The GeoSIP hempcrete block is an innovative, load-bearing building system – now available in Australia!
The world produces 4 Billion M3 of concrete per year. That is enough to cover Great Britain and Ireland with 1M of harmful concrete. GeoSIP believes that building our homes with natural materials guarantees a perfect environmental balance.

We use the waste – the woody part of a plant that has already provided us with seeds (for flower or oil) and fibre (for fabrics, rope and composites).
Those remains or ‘waste’ are mixed with an ancient recipe of lime binders and made into a building product. A Structural Insulated Panel, SIP or block.
The block is engineered with strong, weather resistant and long lasting materials that have been tested with amazing results.
This carbon negative building system is excellent for construction of homes, infill of high rise, buildings in fire prone areas, fire separation walls, hospitals, schools, restaurants, offices and renovations.
It is the best choice to construct healthy, non-toxic and load bearing walls, in the most economic way
