An Interview with Steve Heller
The new executive director of the ICFA has plans to professionalize the organization, and has the experience and know-how to make it happen.

World of Concrete Preview
There’s a lot for ICF professionals to see at the largest concrete-related trade show, including the ICF Builder Awards.

The Newest Reality TV Star
The ease and speed of ICF construction is becoming well-known.  Two segments of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition feature the technology.

Code Compliance: Who Has It, and Who Doesn’t
Code certification is one key to better acceptance by building officials.  Here’s a concise list of which forms have which certifications.

Comparison Chart and Explanation
The industry comparison chart is back again, introduced by a concise, illustrated guide to help determine which form is best.

The Greenest ICFs Might be Gray
Composite ICFs, made from EPS and Portland cement, offer many environmental benefits traditional foam blocks can’t match.  They offer construction advantages, too.

2008 Industry Forecast
Record oil prices, increasing mandates for sustainable construction, and a housing slump that keeps dragging on will all have a significant effect on the industry.

Project Profile: New Southern Home
Designed to showcase construction technologies of the future, this 12,000 sq. ft. home in Orlando, Fla., is built with ICFs.  Tour it during the IBS Show held in February 2008.

Contractors’ Biggest Problems
Industry legend Pieter VanderWerf interviewed more than 40 ICF installers to compile this well-researched look into the biggest challenges they face in their businesses.
