Insulating Concrete Forms for Multifamily Residential Construction
Guidance for architects and engineers on how to design and build high performance reinforced concrete multifamily residential buildings using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). Combining the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with rigid insulation, ICFs provide ideal solutions for apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories and assisted living facilities. With increased attention to occupant safety and comfort, design professionals can take advantage of concrete’s inherent fire resistance and noise reduction qualities. This article addresses how the thermal properties of ICFs offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The article also provides guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF concrete construction to take full advantage of these benefits.
