The Limecrete Company Ltd was established in 2006 when Myles and Louisa Yallop, concerned with the environmental impact of their civil engineering firm, made the decision to move away from conventional construction methods. Myles Yallop says “We had to stop burning diesel and throwing concrete in the ground for a living”.
Myles developed a highly efficient mixer ‘The Big Green Limecrete Machine’ which eliminated the problems associated with limecrete when it is mixed in a drum mixer, too much water is added or jobs are carried out laboriously slowly. The firm follows the system developed by Ty-Mawr Lime Ltd (which is highly insulating and has LABC approval) with great results.
The company was appealed to by building contractors to provide a batching service using our specially modified volumetric mixers which is now being launched with our materials supplier Ty Mawr Lime Ltd.
Limecrete has so many advantages aside from the obvious green credentials. Modern systems are well insulating, breathable and flexible, creating a healthy space in which to live and work. The challenge has been getting these sustainable materials into mainstream construction. With the implementation of large scale projects this breakthrough finally appears to be happening. The Limecrete Company Ltd now has an impressive back catalog of sustainability and heritage work including schools, churches, stately homes and social housing developments. Their team is motivated and committed and can be proud of both the standard of their workmanship and their contribution to finding modern solutions to the issue of climate change.
The Limecrete Company Ltd provide limecrete floor solutions all over the U.K.
