To adapt to climate change and adverse weather events, we need to use climate resiliency strategies in construction. Climate resiliency methods can both contribute to slowing the pace of climate change and make our buildings more resilient and less susceptible to damage.
ICFs make a suitable building material for gable walls, especially if the gable section is heated or the gable walls require high wind resistance. For example, a high vaulted ceiling in a great room is bound to accumulate rising heat, so blocking heat transfer with highly efficient ICFs is an excellent idea.
Recent years have seen plenty of research into fire-resistant construction, with some outstanding results. In this post, we will walk you through 2 essential strategies for designing and building homes in areas prone to wildfire.
Discover the many advantages of building school safe rooms with ICFs and share some recent statistics about safe rooms built with insulated concrete forms for hard-hit regions of the US.
Logix is the only ICF supplier to have developed an engineering app like the One-Minute Engineer and it will save you considerable time and money during the design phase!
This Logix ICF infinity pool was recently built high up in Utah’s Rocky Mountains ranges. Here, you’ll learn how the project team dealt with numerous challenges — from freezing temperatures and high altitudes, to a lack of bedrock on which to base the foundation.
After the release of our Logix ICF pool installation guide, we’re happy to announce the release of a companion guide — this time, meant to alleviate the hard work of ICF pool designers everywhere.
Unique design, construction, sustainability, and resilience all contribute to these projects being the winning projects of the 2022 Logix ICF Awards.
Let's explore the advantages of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) — an alternative to steel rebar that might be able to help you build better!
Let's look at the typical concrete core widths in single-family dwelling ICF walls and see how to choose the right size for your project.
