The effectiveness of hempcrete as an infill insulation in the Prairies compared to a standard building based on power consumption
A series of test panels were constructed to later form a test building at the Alternative Village, located on the University of Manitoba campus, in order to evaluate how hempcrete works as an infill insulation material. This building fit into a test program that was already underway in which buildings of the same size differed only in the materials and construction of their walls. The roof and floor structures were identical among them. The baseline building was constructed according to conventional industry practices.
