Many contractors can claim to be “Green Builders” because it’s popular or because they know that’s where the future of construction is going. We have been designing and building this way for nearly 30 years.
Insulated Concrete Forms - A system of framework for concrete that stays in place as permanent building insulation for energy efficient, cast-in-place, reinforced concrete walls, floors, and roofs. The forms are interlocking modular units that are stacked and filled with concrete. These structures are incredibly energy efficient. They have minimal air leaks if any. The building is constructed on a concrete slab so it forms one continuous surface. This keeps the bugs out. There is no way to generate mold – the building will not rot when it gets wet. The buildings are 10 times stronger than wood frame structures, giving them a greater resistance to forces of nature. Building with ICF’s will help you attain LEED Green Building Status. The cost to build with ICF only adds about 3% to the overall cost of a project. The savings in your energy bills is up to 70% - Which in turn makes up for that 3% and the added safety, peace of mind and value is priceless.
Make sure you rely on a contractor that is experienced in “green building” & the design process before you hire them – Not having experience planning, designing, and being able to implement those designs can be extremely costly for the owner. We are a company that is true and integral to the standards of green building.
