Designing Walls Built With Insulated Concrete Forms | Save Time and Money

Are you spending too much time and money designing your ICF walls?

We get it. There are a lot of lengthy reinforcement tables to go comb through when it comes to designing your ICF walls, specifically when it comes to rebar placement. This is especially true if you’re new to ICFs in the first place.

That’s exactly why we developed the Logix ICF One Minute Engineer. In a nutshell, this tool designs your walls for you, whether you are an installer, designer or a DIYer.  

Put another way, this clever tool simply demystifies all the lengthy and complex reinforcement tables. 

In fact, the Logix ICF One Minute Engineer is the only tool in the ICF industry that offers this capability. Give the online app a test drive now at

Without further ado, read on to understand the benefits of this powerful tool and how it works.

How The Logix ICF One Minute Engineer Works

A great design tool for installers, designers and DIYers, the Logix ICF One Minute Engineer makes the process of engineering your walls much easier.

By this, we mean that it makes it easy to figure out the steel reinforcement bar requirements in the wall cavity (both in terms of how much you need and where it should go).

Sure, not every ICF brand even offers useful prescriptive engineering tables in the first place (however lengthy they may be), but Logix ICF does and we wanted to make them even easier to use.

As you may or may not know, the process of calculating rebar can also involve going to a licensed engineer. However, the One Minute Engineer makes it possible to make these calculations and create the design documents you need to get your building permits, usually without the added expense of going to an engineer.

Here is a short video clip that quickly shows how easy the One Minute Engineer is to use:

As you can see, all you need to do is enter the simple details that pertain to your particular build (such as wall size etc.) and click the ”Preview” button. You will then get the rebar design for that particular wall assembly.

You can then click on “Report” which will generate a standard-compliant ICF wall design report that you can give to building officials:

Why Use the Logix ICF One Minute Engineer

  • Make Designing ICF Walls That Much Easier. Whether you are engineering above-grade walls, below-grade walls, lintels and so on (keep in mind that lintels are particularly complex for ICF installers to calculate), the Logix ICF One Minute Engineer tells you exactly how much rebar you need and where it needs to go.
  • Save Time and Money By Doing the Engineering Yourself. It’s no secret that engineers, while important, add time and money to any project. The Logix ICF One Minute Engineer reduces these added costs so that you are that much closer to meeting your budget.

Wrapping It Up

The Logix ICF One Minute Engineer is only the beginning when it comes to resources for builders and designers.

From other tools like the Logix ICF One Minute Estimator to drawing conversions, review drawings, engineering, on-site tech support, training classes and more, Logix Brands does everything in our power to reap the benefits of ICFs in the easiest way possible.
