Building a home from Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) has its challenges. Detailed planning in the early stages is critical to success. This is the heart of the Integrated Project Delivery model. This photo represents IPD in action. Seated at the table are the architect, contractor and structural engineer, ICF and window suppliers. Every square inch of the house is discussed in technical detail to assure the environmental, structural, and aesthetic integrity of the new home. Due to the nature (and benefits) of ICF construction, there are no “second takes”. You have to get it right the first time.
