Insulated concrete forms (also known as insulating concrete forms, or ICFs) are formwork, or moulds, for reinforced concrete that are designed with built-in thermal insulation.
These moulds are stackable and interlocking, which permits them to be fitted with reinforced steel bars in order to maximize flexural strength when filled with concrete.
The ICF construction technique creates structures with unparalleled strength and durability. The method was developed in the 1960s and is now among the preferential building processes for all categories of projects.
ICFs are well suited for Vancouver Island construction projects – from low rise commercial to residential – in that they dramatically boost energy efficiency, reduce environmental footprints and increase structural durability and earthquake resistance.
Insulated concrete form construction delivers a wide range of advantages:
