Alex Sparrow and William Stanwix

Directors of Hemp-LimeConstruct

Appearing on both days at the Hemp Expo, and giving talks on Saturday at 12pm and Sunday at 12:30pm in the Hemp Talks Room

Alex Sparrow and William Stanwix are among the foremost experts on building with hempcrete, or “hemp-lime”, a composite material made from the stalk of the industrial hemp plant. They are directors at Hemp-LimeConstruct; a UK construction company specialising in building with hempcrete and other natural materials.


Will is a qualified building surveyor and founder of Hemp-LimeConstruct, one of the UK’s first construction companies to specialise in the use of hempcrete. His co-director Alex specialises in retrofitting insulation with hempcrete in historic and traditional buildings, and is also a freelance writer on building with natural materials. In addition to their construction business, they offer consultancy, technical design and training for people interested in using hempcrete and other natural materials.


William and Alex are co-authors of The Hempcrete Book: Designing and building with hemp-lime, the definitive guide to this “deep-green” building material, published in October 2014 by Green Books.
