The winners of the 2018 ICF Builder Awards were announced in Las Vegas, Nev., at an evening award presentation held in conjunction with the World of Concrete trade show in January.   The annual project-of-the-year competition is widely regarded as the biggest event in the ICF industry, and the best opportunity to come together, network,  and celebrate the advances that have been made.

Industry growth, combined with a flood of entries this year, led to the expansion of several categories.  In addition to the three residential categories, winners were chosen in the light commercial, specialty application and multifamily divisions. This year’s event also included a residential development category, and the heavy commercial winners were separated into education and religious divisions.

The top scoring projects, listed on the following pages, stood out in a worldwide competition where every entry was noteworthy and impressive.

The construction teams who built the winning projects were recognized in front of more than 200 of the most influential figures in the ICF industry, including designers, installers, manufacturers, distributors, owners, and representatives of auxiliary ICF products.

Complexity, creativity, site challenges and media exposure were all factored in determining which projects deserved top honors.

“These are milestone projects that have advanced the entire industry due to their significance and visibility,” says Clark Ricks, editorial director of this magazine and one of the contest judges. “The individuals who design and build these impressive structures are redefining what’s possible with ICF.”

The event was made possible thanks to the generous support of sponsors, including ICF Builder Group, a trade association for ICF professionals and the other sponsors listed below.  Platinum sponsor Giraffe Bracing donated several valuable prizes, including an entire crate of Giraffe Bracing, which was awarded to Malcolm Matthews of ICF Texas..
