Expert Consultancy with Steve Allin

Steve Allin has enthusiastically pioneered the use of hemp in building in Ireland and internationally since 1997 & is the author of the pre-eminent book "Building with Hemp" (2006) 2nd Edition, 2012.building with hemp

He has also contributed articles to a variety of publications from the Green Building Bible to Cannabis Culture magazine.

He was a director of Hemp Ireland Ltd. (1998-2003) which was set up to research and develop a hemp processing facility in Ireland. The information gained from this helped in developing the plans for a truly sustainable industrial production of hemp on a local community level as a bio-regional approach to the production of basic ecologically appropriate food, biomass and building materials.
The use of hemp in construction was seen by Steve as the best way to expand the production of hemp and a way to increase the value of the hemp wood element of the crop.

In his activities connected to actually using the materials he has experimented with many different combinations of ingredients to create a binder for hempcrete and has consulted with different projects all over the world. As a hemp building consultant he has advised on projects in Belgium, Canada, Haiti, Ireland, Nepal, South Africa, Switzerland, UK and the United States. He has run many successful Hemp building courses in Australia, Canada, Finland, Ireland, Sweden and the United States.He continues to act as an advisor for projects wishing to establish hemp processing facilities for hemp construction products.

He is currently director of the International Hemp Building Association IHBA established in November 2009 after the successful 1st International Hemp Building Symposium which he organised earlier that year in Ireland. In his role as director of the IHBA, Steve has given presentations in the Czech Republic, Ireland, Germany, Lithuania, Spain, Sweden and the United States.
