  1. High Performance Buildings Using Insulating Concrete Formwork

  2. Insulating Concrete FormworkA Modern Method of Construction (MMC) • A building system where EPS provides formwork for in-situ concrete structure. It is then left in place for permanent insulation • Moulded Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) formwork with integral ties/bridges • Also called ‘Permanent Insulated Formwork’, ‘Thermo Forms’ or ‘Wallform’ in the UK

  3. ICF is used for - Housing

  4. ICF is used for - Basements

  5. ICF is used for - Shops, cinemas

  6. ICF is used for - Swimming pools, leisure facilities

  7. ICF is used for - Schools

  8. The ICF system • There are many different ICF products They differ in the details of their shapes, cavities and component parts (ties). Please view video clip 1

  9. The ICF system • Three main types: • Block systems • Plank systems • Panel systems Please view video clip 2

  10. The ICF system • Four types of cavities: • Flat block • Grid block • Post and beam • Flat panel Please view video clip 3

  11. Examples of cladding • Brick cladding identical to traditional brick and block houses

  12. Examples of cladding Tile hung Timber clad • Brick slips Render can be applied directly to ICF

  13. ICF key benefits • Design flexibility • Speed of construction • Cost effectiveness • Sustainability Egan and Latham compliant

  14. The future • Incorporating developments in self-compacting concrete and fibre reinforced rendering, ICF is rapidly becoming a popular MMC • More creative design • System integration • Standardization • Regulations & specifications (lower insurance premiums)
