technology_play - ICF l what is it? / by Annabelle Guldner

Check out the process on the mountain-modern getaway we designed!

ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) - this method of construction is a great alternative to stick framing and offers wonderful insulation qualities that are by far better than spray foam insulation values. On top of that the durability of building built with ICF  in residential home construction can finally compare with construction methods in Europe. We love the technology behind. The mountain-modern home we designed for a family in Leadville is in the progress of getting built with ICF. We are interested to be part of the process and learn more about this exciting development. Especially in Colorado where temps fall and fire protection needs to be addressed more vigilantly. 
ICF comes in different thicknesses and can be combined with conventional wood framing. Talking to a few GC's here in the springs the cost once all is said and done is comparable, but construction time an duration is cut down tremendously! All in all a win-win is you ask me and we are excited to get into this!
