Q&A with the owner
Q. What was the major benefit of using Amvic ICF 3.30 over conventional construction?
A. We wanted a better and more efficient building envelope. Energy costs are high so with ICF, the sooner we can build it the faster we can stand it, and while meeting building efficiencies.
Q. What convinced you to stay with Amvic ICF 3.30?
A. We embraced the ICF, discovered new techniques for installing ICF and found that it was a clean and straight build.ICF gave us better insulation and reduced the time and labour.
“Using the Pex panels the team andI were able to walk in the piping accurately according to the drawings for better heat distribution. The installation of the ICF3.30 plus blocks were also much easier to place, more durable and tightly interlocked. We are looking forward to using ICF plus for other upcoming projects.”
