Hemp Masonry Company

Klara Marosszeky is the Manager Director of the Australian Hemp Masonry Company, Australia’s lead organisation in hemp building materials research. The company sources hemp from Australian farmers, manufacturers that are BCA-compliant Australian hemp building materials in Sydney. They supply hemp building materials to more than 180 construction projects across all states, including two commercial projects.

Homes using the company’s products have won the 2018 Housing Industry Association National GreenSmart Award, several MasterBuilders Awards and several sustainable design awards.

Klara is also a qualified educator, delivering training in hemp building for builders, owner builders, as well as  advising architects and building designers.  She’s been involved with hemp fibre farming since 1999 and with hemp construction research since 2000.

Her work has included supporting the development of a mobile hemp processing unit that she believes has the potential to transform where and how hemp building materials are processed for the Australian market.

  1. What a great vision and story form Klara! Loved it.

    The chemicals used in building and construction are terrible and Klara’s vision is exactly what we need not only in Australia but worldwide.
