Build Better ICF Schools
Over the last decade ICFs have become the design standard for new school construction in the USA. “It’s hard to see a better alternative for school construction” states an architect who has recently designed many ICF-built schools.
Forward thinking school boards all across the USA are realizing the benefits of building better schools with Logix ICFs. Schools built with ICFs have reduced their monthly utility bills by up to 75% or more, creating up to a per-school savings in the range of $60,000 to $70,000 per year that can be allocated elsewhere to fund needed educational resources and teacher salaries.
And meanwhile, the students enjoy a comfortable and quiet learning environment within a safe steel-reinforced concrete envelope that offers priceless protection from potential threats such as tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires. It’s a win/win all around.
Simply Faster & Less Expensive
And best of all, these high performance ICF schools have often been built within the budgets normally approved for regular conventionally-built schools. That’s because Logix ICF is simply faster and less expensive than you expect high quality school construction to be. And simpler too – with Logix, a single crew of only eight people have built an entire school’s superstructure, largely unimpeded by cold winter conditions.
Logix is the perfect wall for the following elements in new school construction:
- Exterior walls
- Interior load-bearing walls (often corridor walls)
- Fire & sound rated demising walls
- Tall Walls (auditoriums and gymnasiums)
- Safe Rooms and Areas
- Shear Walls
