Lime Technology and Hemcrete Projects have rebranded as Limetec and HemBuild under the joint Limetec Group banner.
Limetec Group specialises in helping customers create eco-efficient buildings through thermal management, employing natural, organic materials that reduce waste and are recyclable.
Wayne Humphreys, chief operating officer of Limetec Group, said: “Our mission is to be the preferred choice for sustainable building solutions, delivering an excellent customer experience through service, quality, and value. This rebrand and new visual identity is a reflection of our commitment to that ethos, offering professional, customer-centric products and services, and reinforcing our resolve to strive for a green building future.”
A new website has been launched to coincide with the rebrand, and is designed to cater for self-builders and renovators, architects and specifiers, and commercial and trade customers. In the near future, alongside other new features, an e-commerce capability will be implemented, allowing customers to buy direct from Limetec and HemBuild online.
Limetec operates two divisions: Limetec Mortars & Renders and Limetec External Wall Insulation (EWI). The first of the two manufactures own brand traditional hydraulic lime mortars in a range of earth tones, and partners with Baumit to provide pre-mixed renders and plasters throughout the UK. The EWI division offers both external and internal wall insulation to cover a wide range of applications, from hard to treat facilities to new build and retrofit projects.
HemBuild offers three different building systems produced using natural materials, including the design, manufacture and installation of high-performance off-site panelised and timber frame building solutions, all of which are carbon-friendly and thermally efficient.
HemClad is a variant of HemBuild designed specifically for “infill-walling” situations, which the company says is the most cost-efficient alternative to lightweight systems to provide thermal mass effect.
Finally, HemLine has been developed to provide the benefits of Internal Wall Insulation systems in a panellised factory-made system, incorporating Limetec’s bio-composite insulation within a timber framing, Hemcrete.
