ICF's for Architects - The Architectural Game Changer

Architects of the 21st century now have a game-changing tool at their disposal in Insulated Concrete Form construction (ICF's). ICF's have now been proven to provide energy efficiency, durability, an eco-friendly green construction technique, reduced carbon footprint and sustainability.

The Prince's Terrace's, recently awarded the first "6 Star Green Star in Residential Design" by the Green Building Council of Australia is testimony to the comprehensive solution that ICF design provides for all of the above concerns. This collaborative project between Defence Housing Australia, Renewal SA and The Princes Trust Australia set a new benchmark in ICF design with sustainable design concepts underlying every aspect of the building.

With its latest "As Built" accreditation, this pioneering design has become one of the highest rated developments in sustainable living in Australia. The "As Built" assessment certifies that the completed building and finished product has achieved and delivered on sustainable outcomes.

ICF's offer superior R-ratings and can incorporate energy-saving technologies that provide highly a efficient and structurally strong design with high thermal mass and a durable insulating building envelope. All of these characteristics are significant to empowering the Architect or Designer when designing in ICF.

"These are maintenance free homes. The strength and durability of the concrete walls means there won't be the maintenance required compared to that of a conventional timber framed house," according to Optima Construction, a Sydney Construction Company specialising in ICF building.
