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
While church construction may not be an obvious niche for ICFs, they’re doing very well in this sector.  As long-term owner-operators, efficiency is a key selling point, but there are other advantages as well.

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.
