THE ENVIRONMENT AND ICF
ICFs offer Superior Energy Performance envi1 and whole life costs combined with excellent durability.
They can be used for all wall construction types above or below ground and they are fully recycable. They are made from materials which are not scarce, that have chain of custody schemes and are relatively local deliveries to building sites in the UK. The average delivery radial of RMC is 6 miles. see www.sustainableconcrete.org.uk
The combination of concrete delivered in exact quantities by truck mixerenvi2 and ICFs simply clipped together offers clean safe building sites with almost zero wastage.
ICF buildings can last for centuries and their robustness has been recognised by the American Armed Forces who have used them to build recent bases in the middle East following successful blast tests in the USA.
Insulating Concrete Formwork has many benefits over traditional building methods
