I anticipate progress being made in this industry, though, and it wouldn’t surprise me if, as the industry gains more traction and momentum, that engineers discover a way to make this a possibility. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 111 Answers 0 Best Answers 242 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-07T21:18:27-04:00Added an answer on July 7, 2020 at 9:18 pm No, Hempcrete is not load bearing.

Hemp blocks are not load-bearing, so they are always used with some sort of supporting structure. It doesn’t matter what construction system is used, as long as it provides the structural support. Most of the time wooden frames, or post and beam construction are used, but supporting regular concrete masonry works, too. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
