Timber and brick have long been the go-to materials for building new houses, but an innovative way of constructing with concrete points the way to a greener, more sustainable future…

What is Nudura ICF?

Building with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) is a proven way of creating an eco-friendly, stronger, safer building that’s highly energy efficient, needs minimal maintenance and repair and one where design possibilities are limitless.

But what is ICF? The forms consist of two stay-in-place panels of expanded polystyrene. The best engineered systems are connected with an innovative folding web which minimises wastage and offers greatest flexibility. Nudura’s forms are transported flat to site, opened and stacked, reinforcement placed, propped and then filled with concrete, creating a solid monolithic concrete wall suitable for above and below ground applications.
