The ICFA’s mission is to grow the market share for this Efficient Modern Method of Construction in the UK to reach a minimum 10% market share of above ground external walls of domestic residences by 2016 when Carbon Neutrality is expected to be required for all new Homes in the UK.
In addition ICF homes including those with basements should be seen as the market leading house construction for building on flood plains.
It is expected that a number of Robust Details will be in position to assist ICF development in adjoining properties including flats giving the required extra sound insulation performance to gain the extra points in the Code for Sustainable Homes …. enhanced acoustics section.
In addition it is our intention to develop still further the gains that have already been made in the commercial sector.
