The Green Register Training Session – Lime: An Ancient Material for Modern Building Performance
23.11.23 | 12:00-14:00 | Online Event
In recent years, lime’s suitability for restoring historic buildings and the important part it can play in creating modern, healthy and energy-efficient buildings has led to a rise in popularity among construction professionals.
In this training session, The Green Register is proud to invite Peter Rollinson and Tom Carruthers of Mike Wye to introduce the history, production, and benefits of building limes, addressing frequently asked questions and debunking myths surrounding the general use of building lime products.
A demonstration will showcase the use of natural hydraulic lime (NHL) render with internal wall insulation and highlighting the advantages of using lime with natural fibre insulation to create modern, healthy, low energy buildings.
The final part of the session will focus upon one of the ways lime can be used as an aesthetically pleasing yet functional finish – Tadelakt. A traditional Moroccan polished plaster, Tadelakt can be used to create visually stunning, water repellent surfaces, unique to each application. This lime-based plaster technique was discovered over 2,000 years ago, initially adopted by Berber groups as waterproofing for water storage.
We’ll find out more about the various uses in buildings today, from exterior walls to wetrooms. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for live Q&A during the session, and as always, we welcome your input.
