Commercial Construction with TF Forming Systems Insulated Concrete Forms - Building Green and Sustainable for the Future
Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) have exceptional benefits over traditional building methods in the commercial construction industry. The Vertical ICF forms provide green and sustainable building materials for any construction project. TF Forming Systems Vertical ICF, ThermoForm, is not only better than traditional building methods it also offers many benefits over a block ICF system.
Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms offer a wall assembly that is one of the best known methods of construction in the building industry. An ICF provides a high R-value for extreme energy efficiency while also providing the most disaster resistant and sustainable building possible. For most commercial buildings, ICF's can offer these benefits for less cost than traditional methods such as steel, concrete block (CMU), tilt-up and other systems.
ICF construction is growing rapidly among high profile commercial structures throughout North America. The typical question asked at most ICF presentations is, “Why aren’t most commercial projects going with Insulated Concrete Forms if the benefits are realized at a cost decrease?” The answer to that question is rather simple actually, CHANGE. Those changes are happening right now in the architectural, engineering and general contracting world. The professional building industry leaders are offering ICF as an alternate on some of the largest multi-family, hotels, schools, assisted living, government and industrial buildings in the nation.
