Our insulated concrete forms (ICF) offer the next generation of cement-bonded wood fiber ICF systems. Advancing decades-old Swiss technology, our ICF carries ICF building blocks into the now and beyond.
We use sophisticated mix designs, proprietary processes, and leading-edge equipment to offer green building materials of greater strength and precision than any other manufacturer of similar materials. With decades of experience, we manufacture the only reinforced insulated concrete forms that do not use foam or polystyrene. As the leading non-styrofoam insulated concrete form manufacturer, we provide clients with their proprietary products to architects, designers, and builders in the United States and Canada.
Research provides ample evidence of the benefits of using ICF. Consider that ICF decking weighs 40% less than concrete flooring and offers superior insulation. In addition, ICF walls are constructed only one row at a time. This process means that end blocks are precision cut to fit, thereby reducing waste. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development tells us that ICF can trim homeowners’ annual heating and cooling costs by 20% to 25%. Structures built from green building materials like ICF are six to nine times stronger than structures built from traditional materials.
Using ICF to construct buildings can save lives and homes. ICF construction has the ability to withstand 402 kph winds, protecting structures from natural disasters. ICF systems can also make construction projects more cost-effective as these systems can cut final costs of a project by approximately $0.75 per square foot.
ICF has a long and impressive history. Werner Gregori, a Canadian contractor, patented the first foam concrete form in 1966. His form measured 48 inches long by 16 inches high. Since then, use of ICF systems has grown to global construction use for more than 60 years.
Our high-performance insulated concrete form blocks offer optimal features for both below- and above-grade building construction. As the construction industry continues to go green, advancing green building materials and the use of environmentally sensitive materials, we serve as an essential partner by efficiently and professionally providing the most eco-friendly insulated concrete building blocks available in the industry. We have decades of experience as an important contributor to advancing certified LEED and green building, from passive solar design to superior energy efficiency.
