Can I build internal walls on top of my limecrete floor?

Yes, it is fine to build stud walls or lightweight block work on top of your floor. For any load-bearing walls, you need to check their loadings. Many can be built on limecrete otherwise we suggest that these are built first on separate footings and the floor laid around them. If you know the compressive strength you are looking for, we would then be able to advise on the capabilities of the limecrete floor to meet those requirements.
