The Future of Building

UBC Triple Bottom Line Assessment


Through the triple bottom line analysis of hemp, it is determined that there are many advantages of hemp; in particular, hempcrete. The advantages are numerous and outweigh the disadvantages in each assessment. The material is environmentally friendly, is high yielding, grows rapidly, fully recyclable, provides a healthy living environment, and is durable and strong. Regarding the new SUB project, walls, floors, and roofs could be constructed from hempcrete, supported by a structural framework made from concrete, steel, or timber. The material provides a comfortable living space, and the operating costs of the building would be effectively reduced through decreased heating and cooling costs.
