About Steve

Mr. Allin has enthusiastically pioneered the use of hemp in building internationally since 1997 & is the author of the pre-eminent book “Building with Hemp” (2006) 2nd Edition, 2012. He has also contributed articles to a variety of publications from the Green Building Bible to Cannabis Culture magazine.

Former co-director of Hemp Ireland Ltd. (1998-2003) which was set up to research and develop a hemp processing facility in Ireland. The information gained from this helped in developing the plans for a truly sustainable industrial production of hemp on a local community level as a bio-regional approach to the production of basic ecologically appropriate food, biomass and building materials.

The use of hemp in construction was seen by Steve as the best way to expand the production of hemp and a way to increase the value of the hemp wood element of the crop. In his activities connected to actually using the materials he has experimented with many different combinations of ingredients to create a binder for hempcrete and has consulted with different projects all over the world, from Austria to Canada and Slovakia to the U.K. and has worked on projects in Switzerland and all over Ireland.

He is currently director of the International Hemp Building Association IHBA established in November 2009 after the successful 1st International Hemp Building Symposium which he organised earlier that year in Ireland. He continues to act as an advisor for projects wishing to establish hemp processing facilities for hemp construction products.
