environmentally sound materials for all buildings  :  old & new


Lime Firms Ltd runs courses both at Bridgend College and also at the National Trust's property at Llanerchaeron, near Aberaeron.

Introduction to Lime course

Our Introduction to Lime course, held at the National Trust property dealt with not only lime mortars and their application in the heritage sector, but also the use of lime as a binder in new-build work. The crucial importance of careful aggregate selection, correct mixing and application techniques were just some of the subject areas covered. In addition, consideration was given to some of the novel lime-based construction techniques such as hemp and lime insulating plasters, hemp concrete and lightweight lime concrete.
