Insulated Concrete Forms from NUDURA provide design professionals, architects, home owners and contractors a more efficient way to build insulated concrete form structures. Building with ICFs allow concrete homes and commercial buildings to be built stronger, more energy efficient, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly.
A strip footing foundation is prepared. Strip footings are generally easier to setup than the isolated footings found in traditional construction.
The forms are stacked on top of one another like lego bricks to build up the walls. Opening for the windows and doors are accounted for as well.
Horizontal rebar is clicked into place along each course. When the wall height is finsihed the vertical rebar is fed through.
The aligment system is setup to ensure all the walls are positioned accurately for the concrete pour. NUDURA has its own bracing system which can be used.
5. Concrete Pour
A concrete pump is used to fill the core of the forms. Once the concrete dries, the result is immensly stong reinforced, monolithic concrete wall.
6. Services & Roofing
The floors and roofing are placed when the concrete has dried. The service pipes are chased through the foam of the ICF blocks.
