Build Better Disaster-Resilient Homes & Buildings
Natural disasters are on the rise, both in frequency and intensity. Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and fires threaten our comfort and our security – two of the greatest human values. Ironically, people continue to move to high-risk coastal areas and other locations prone to these natural disasters in ever-increasing numbers.
Homes and buildings constructed with Logix Insulated Concrete Forms don’t just save energy – they’re also built to last under even extreme weather conditions. That’s the genius of the Logix steel-reinforced concrete core. The combination of poured concrete and steel rebar means that Logix ICF walls are exceptionally strong, while still offering a pliancy that effectively dampens the power of hurricanes and earthquakes.
Logix ICF is the perfect start toward building a disaster-resilient home or building. Here are some suggestions for "pushing the ultra-resilient Logix building envelope" and further enhancing the disaster resilience of your new Logix XtraComfort™ Home or High-Performance Building.
This Logix constructed home has many additional high wind-resistant features built in, to minimize loss or damage due to hurricanes.
This is the premier ICF project in the reconstruction of Greensburg KS. This community center contains a library, media centers, office areas, museum and even a restored soda fountain. This is a LEED Platinum certified project.
This home was designed to be the ultimate convergence of sustainability and resilience. In fact, this home was designed to be able to withstand a nuclear event.
What people say about building with Logix.
The (Logix) concrete house was fine. The concrete home was standing. It did not suffer any damage that I could see other than some cosmetic damage to the exterior and the garage doors.Seth John Sochaki (2012 Super-storm Sandy Survivor)
A storm like this that we never thought could happen, can indeed happen. Being in this (Logix) house was the greatest thing we could have done and I am glad that we had this house to come to next door because I felt utterly secure inside this home.John Sochaki Jr. (2012 Super-storm Sandy Survivor)
