2023 ICF Builder Award Highlights

Design Innovation

Every year Amvic could not be more excited to showcase the great quality work that their customers achieve using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs). Not only do the ICF Builder Awards provide a platform to highlight the growth and positive impact of sustainable, energy efficient living, but the event itself allows engagement and networking in an industry that can prove challenging against traditional construction methods. These awards continue to highlight growth and we couldn’t be prouder of this year’s winners.

Held in Las Vegas during the World of Concrete Show, Amvic took home five awards as well as People’s Choice awards in the small residential, unlimited residential, multifamily and light commercial categories. Winners are listed below:
