What is ICF?

Insulated concrete formwork (ICF) is a modern construction method that is becoming very popular.  It is known for its superior quality and comfort.  We have partnered up with Thermohouse Ltd and feel ICF is the way forward.  It’s an innovative, sustainable high performance building system.  Its allows fast construction with low running costs and a long life.

How does it work?

ICF blocks are made of extremely lightweight expanded polystyrene (EPS) and are hollow in the middle, following this concrete is applied into the hollow blocks using a concrete pump, giving the building all the security of traditional concrete blocks in half the time.


Some of the main advantages of ICF are:

  • Fast construction and low running costs
  • Airtightness
  • Prioritise energy efficiency
  • Durability
  • Higher thermal, sound and fire performance
  • Less Maintenance
