Having looked into lots of green technologies that we didn’t have complete faith in, we found something simple that accomplishes 90% of what we wanted. Utilizing two simple products, you have a completely passive solution to a building envelope. Almost indestructible, airtight, with enough insulation and mass that can resist the cycle of the southern day for several days, even weeks in a row at a slight premium in cost. The ICF envelope cools using 40% less tonnage. This has prompted us to lease with all utilities included, saving costs related to individual electric meters. We found this to be a very appealing scenario for our customers and relatively easy to understand by investors and lenders.

 

Q & A with the builder

Q. What was the major benefit of using ICF’s over alternative construction methodologies?

A: The precise planning of ICF modules can yield a substantial decrease in environmental waste – a significant advantage when compared with conventional building materials and systems.

Q. Why did you choose Amvic ICF’s?

A: We chose Amvic because their 6″ web spacing is superior to other blocks we’ve examined and it’s helpful for the pace at which we like to pour a large building.
