The winners of the 2024 ICF Builder Awards were announced in person at an awards ceremony on January 24 at World of Concrete. The winning team of each project received custom engraved plaques with information about their projects. We appreciate everyone who attended the in-person event and those of you who voted in the People’s Choice Awards and shared the link so that others could view the projects. The ICF Builder Awards are the most prestigious awards to be given to the many fine projects created throughout the year using ICFs. This year, we received dozens of entries in nine categories. We announced a winner and two runner ups in each category, along with a People’s Choice Award winner in each category.

Four of the nine People’s Choice Awards winners were ones that our ICF Builder Awards judges also chose as winners. There were so many interesting features of each project that it was difficult to narrow them down. The fact that the voters chose different projects than we did was interesting because it reveals that there is a lot to notice about each of these projects, far beyond just pretty pictures! Find out more about each of the 27 highest scoring projects and which ones won the People’s Choice Awards on the following pages.

While insulated concrete forms are an ideal solution for foundations and basements, there is a misnomer that they are only utilized for those below-grade conditions. In fact, ICFs can be used above-grade all the way to the roof to enhance their insulation and durability benefits to the end-user. www.icfmag.com/.../from-the-icfma-icfs-for.../ ... See MoreSee Less
