Why Building With Concrete Is Better
By Vanessa Salvia
Concrete gets a bad environmental rap. The challenge for concrete is that its key ingredient, cement, is responsible for most of the emissions from concrete. But there are many reasons why building with concrete is better, and also many ways that building with concrete can be better.

How To: Evaluate ICFs Versus Wood or CMU
By Tom Patton
The major question everyone is posting regarding building materials and wall assemblies is related to cost, specifically the initial capital costs for the options of building with ICFs versus traditional wood framing or concrete block.

Cemstone and ACPA Participate in Nationwide Habitat for Humanity Efforts
By Vanessa Salvia, ACPA, and Cemstone
ICF homes need less maintenance; cost less to heat and cool; are more durable in the event of a natural disaster such as a fire, tornado, hurricane, or earthquake; are more resistant to pests and molds; and are quiet and comfortable. Habitat For Humanity is increasing its number of ICF new home builds, including this single-family home in Northfield, Minnesota.

Renewing BYU Hawaii With ICFs
By Vanessa Salvia
The introduction of ICF to the Brigham Young University Hawaii campus represents a significant milestone for the industry for a number of reasons related to flood plain, overall sustainability and maintenance cost, and the corrosive salt air of the island environment.

Project Profile: Cumberland Trace Elementary School
Cumberland Trace Elementary School in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is one of many recent schools built with ICFs. It was the 1st Runner Up in our 2022 ICF Builder Awards.
