This is an assessment of the Limecrete flooring system as supplied by Mike Wye & Associates. Limecrete is a system designed to provide an insulated breathable ground bearing floor slab, intended primarily for traditionally built housing which might not be well suited to the provision of impervious, non-flexible concrete floor construction.
A limecrete floor slab is constructed using natural hydraulic lime powder (NHL) with sand and/or clay aggregates and the insulation is achieved by the use of a loosefill ‘hardcore’ layer of coated foamed clay aggregate. The system also incorporates geotextile membranes.
