Four Inch ICF Walls
By Joseph C. E. Warnes, et al.
This team of respected ICF experts argue that a properly engineered ICF wall with a 4-inch core can withstand virtually any natural disaster.  The key is a total concrete shell.

High-Rise Hotel
Completed in 2005, but scarcely noticed, this Florida beach resort is the tallest known ICF building in North America, reaching 148 feet above grade.

ICFs for Religious Construction

Self Consolidating Concrete
Imagine a concrete mix design that would fill an ICF perfectly—no voids, no honeycombing, perfect encapsulation of rebar—without using any type of vibration.  It already exists, and costs less than you might think.

Get Involved in Politics
By Randy Wilkerson
Construction giant  Joe Rodgers once said, “Get into politics or get out of business.” That’s never been truer than today.  Labor laws, immigration issues, energy codes, tax credits and other issues will surely affect your business.  Here’s how to get involved.

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

The MAC Federal Credit Union in Wasilla, Alaska, is a prime example of how insulated concrete forms can be used to create a beautiful, energy-efficient, and resilient building. Completed in July 2021, the project was the Light Commercial 2nd runner up and People’s Choice Winner in the 2023 ICF Builder Awards.
