BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms

BuildBlock ICF forms combine the standard features you’ve come to expect in a quality ICF with features that eliminate waste, reduce necessary labor and complexity, and deliver superior results for professionals and DIY alike. BuildBlock is built for speed with the least waste and many unique benefits you’ll find in no other block.

BuildBlock Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) are a building system that uses interlocking EPS foam blocks to create a formwork for reinforced concrete walls. The foam blocks are designed to interlock, creating a tight and secure formwork for the concrete. The formwork includes internal webs that provide a continuous insulation layer to eliminate thermal bridging and air leaks. The foam blocks come in various sizes and shapes and can be easily cut and customized on-site to meet the specific requirements of a construction project. 

The reinforced concrete is poured into the formwork, creating a solid and durable wall system. The concrete core provides excellent resistance to wind, debris, and other natural disasters, making ICFs a popular choice for construction in areas prone to severe weather events. 

The insulation properties of the EPS foam in the formwork provide superior energy efficiency and can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 50%. The tight fit of the formwork also offers excellent sound insulation properties, making ICFs ideal for structures where noise is a concern. 

The use of ICFs offers a range of benefits, including ease of installation, versatility in design, and environmental responsibility. The EPS foam used in the formwork is recyclable, and the long-term energy savings of ICFs can help reduce a building’s carbon footprint. Additionally, the customizable design of ICFs allows for flexibility in construction, making it possible to build a variety of structures, from simple homes to complex commercial buildings.
