What exactly is the nudura building system l.jpg

What exactly is the Nudura Building System?

Nudura is an integrated form system for building concrete walls, known as an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF). The system uses foam blocks that lock together similar to toy building blocks, which build a wall that is then filled with reinforcing steel and concrete. The result is a very strong concrete wall with insulation and vapor barrier integrated in one step.

What exactly is the Nudura Building System?

A Nudura Form Unit has three main parts

  • Two layers of recyclable EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) Foam form a double layer of insulation protection

  • Middle space which becomes the concrete core and strength of the wall

  • Nudura’s patented hinged folding web, which allows the forms to be folded flat for efficient transport and have pre placed slots for locking in steel reinforcing bars

The Nudura form units are available in many shapes and sizes to fit your building plan, including:

  • Different concrete core thicknesses

  • 90° Corners, 45° Corners, T-Walls

  • Custom radius curves

  • … and more.

Foundation

Start with a concrete footing, no different than what you would use on any other concrete wall or concrete block wall.

Form units are then stacked on top of the footing, with the vertical steel of the footing positioned close to the centre of the of the form unit.

The forms are built up one course at a time.

A Nudura site is clean with very little wastage.

Usually a crew of 2 to 4 workers is all that is required with the Nudura building system.

Steel Reinforcement

On each course the horizontal reinforcing steel is installed by locking into the notches in the web.

The notches allow for quick, easy and secure placement of rebar with little or no tying required.

The Nudura System is designed for simplicity and speed at all stages.

Doorways and windows are framed as you work upward.

Utility holes for plumbing and electrical access are easy to cut into the foam before the concrete is poured.

Bracing

The Nudura alignment system is then attached to the wall to provide three functions.

  • To provide secure temporary bracing for the forms.

  • The diagonal support (turnbuckle) easily turns to adjust the wall to be plumb and straight.

  • The scaffold bracket locks in to the top of the alignment system. This provides a safe and secure walk way to access the top of the wall.

    Very helpful during the concrete pour.

Vertical Steel Placement

Vertical steel is then threaded down from the top.

This is done very easily when the horizontal bars are alternated in the notches of the webs on each course.

Pouring the Concrete

Concrete is then poured in to the form and vibrated or rodded to consolidate the concrete.

When the wall is poured as one solid slab it is much stronger than when it is poured in separate cells as in concrete block.

Utilities

After the wall is poured the plumbers and electricians can proceed.

This work is done very fast, since most or all of it can be cut into the foam insulation.

Working in the foam means the plumbers and electricians do not need to be working during wall construction as they would with a concrete block wall. No jackhammer required.

Cutting into the foam can be done with; hot knives, hand routers, electric chainsaws and more.

Windows & Doors

Just as there is more than one way to frame out windows and doors with the Nudura system, there are different ways to mount your windows and doors. You can choose which method is best for you.

The Roof

There are literally are dozens of ways to attach a roof to a Nudura wall. When building for high wind conditions such as hurricanes or tornadoes, it is recommended to anchor the roof directly into the concrete.

As seen in this photo where floor joist hangers are turned on end to anchor the wood trusses.

Exterior Siding

Any code approved exterior finish can be attached to a Nudura wall.

Integrated into the foam insulation are vertical strips of high density plastic.

These strips can hold a screw or a nail with the same strength as a wood stud.

Any type of paneling (wood, vinyl, concrete etc.) can be nailed or screwed to the stripes the same as wood or steel studs.

Metal mesh can be screwed on to anchor and prevent cracks in concrete finishes.

Fiber glass mesh can be used for acrylic base finishes.

There are even special “brick ledge” forms that create a shelf or ledge to carry the weight of bricks or stone facing.

The Nudura system also creates its own vapor barrier, which means you don’t need to apply a vapor barrier such as Tyvek® or Tar Paper.

Since you can use any exterior siding, you now can have the strength and security of a concrete home without having to sacrifice your choices in exterior styles or looks.

How ever you picture your dream home, it can be built, using the Nudura building system.

The advantages of building with the Nudura System

Speed

At all stages the Nudura building system is designed to go up quickly and easily.

A crew of 3 can easily build the walls and have the concrete poured on a one story home in 3 to 5 days!

Faster build time, means a faster move in for the owner, and the builder moves to the next project faster.

The advantages of building with the Nudura System

Easy

The Nudura system is so simple it is ingenious. The system is designed to be simple for the installer, so getting straight, plumb walls have never been easier. The notches in the internal webs make installing the steel effortless with little or no tying, and they ensure proper spacing and positioning of the steel within the concrete wall.

The advantages of building with the Nudura System

Reduced Labour Costs

Expensive and highly specialized trades are not required with the Nudura system. The walls can be built with a much smaller crew, coupled together with a faster build time, greatly reduces your chances of going over budget on the project due to runaway labour costs, without compromising quality.

Design Flexibility

Nudura forms are very adaptable to a variety of innovative and efficient designs. Nudura’s concrete core allows for the easy installation of doors and windows without compromising the structure of your home while curved, sloped and extra tall walls are easily built with Nudura.

Nudura does not require special plans designed for the Nudura system. If you have a floor plan you already like, it can be built using Nudura technology.

The benefits for the home owner l.jpg

The Benefits for the Home Owner

Durable

Due to Nudura’s design, the walls have up to 9 times more axial load resistance than a typical wood-framed wall and almost twice the moment capacity of a concrete block wall. Nudura technology provides enhanced protection for your home, especially in areas prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, and even tornadoes.

The Benefits for the Home Owner

Energy Efficient

Nudura walls are highly insulated concrete, which helps keep out the outside heat and provides superior energy efficiency. The insulated walls shield the home from the heating effects of the sun, they will not absorb the heat and then slowly radiate the heat into the home as exposed concrete walls will.

With a well insulated Nudura home, you can save 30% - 50% off your Air Condition energy costs. Which can really add up over time.

The Benefits for the Home Owner

Sound Resistant

Nudura’s double foam insulated concrete core acts as an effective sound barrier, dampening sound vibrations and ensuring a serene and comfortable ambience within the home. Whether it is an air-conditioning unit mounted on the exterior of the home, or outside traffic noise, your home will be quieter with Nudura.

The Benefits for the Home Owner

Fire Resistant

Nudura walls are built with steel reinforced concrete core and fire retardant-treated expanded polystyrene foam. In case of fire Nudura walls are more likely to remain standing, and are very resistant to the spread of fire.
