High Performance Buildings - Using Insulating Concrete Formwork (free)


This publication highlights the benefits of construction using insulating concrete formwork (ICF). These include fast construction, high levels of thermal insulation and design flexibility. ICF typically comprises twin-walled expanded polystyrene panels or blocks, facilitating in-situ concrete placement. The formwork is left in place permanently as thermal insulation. Used extensively on the Continent and in North America, the publication demonstrates the potential for the UK residential and commercial market.
