"The challenges of Covid-19, material availability, rising costs and supply chain challenges were all successfully faced during the construction of the this project, This building stands out as an example of using more sustainable products to construct an more energy-efficient and well-built comfortable building."
Dan D.
Dunn-Right Construction

TYPE OF BUILD 
Commercial

LOCATION 
West Jordan, UT

SIZE 
17,280 sq. ft.

YEAR BUILT 
2021

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS: This commercial building design featured tall Logix ICF walls supporting a steel truss EPDM roof system.

CONSTRUCTION FACTS: Due to delays with the footing contractor, the scheduled ICF crew was lost due to scheduling conflicts. Thus this commercial ICF structure was basically built by a self-performing 3-man GC crew doing their first ICF build, at an excellent 0.625 mh/sq ft productivity rate.

RESILIENCE, SUSTAINABILITY & COMFORT NOTES: Once fully occupied this building used less than a third of the power consumed by the 3 other similar, but non-ICF buildings in the same industrial park.

“The site was transformed from a run down gas station to a quality facility that now enhances the beautful neighborhood. It has raised the bar for future commercial development in the area.”
Mark Gifford
Logix ICF Territory Manager

TYPE OF BUILD 
Commercial

LOCATION 
Williamsville, NY

SIZE 
4,500 sq. ft.

YEAR BUILT 
2019

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS: This is a fairly intricate structural design that was complicated by the number of massive windows, a lack of load-bearing interior walls and the tall 14’ exterior walls. The design also featured arched openings and a stone veneer.

CONSTRUCTION FACTS: Speed of construction through the winter was a paramount factor and offset the delays when solid rock was hit at shallow depths during excavation. Building with Logix ICF allow the builder to construct this building during the winter thus allowing the facility to open for their busy season target date.

RESILIENCE, SUSTAINABILITY & COMFORT NOTES: The Logix ICF wall system maintains a comfortable environment for the staff during the winter and protects the critical water delivery systems within the facility from freezing.

“This lovely home has become an iconic architectural piece in the Winnipeg community. The front tyndall stone is fashioned after Winnipeg stone cathedrals dating back to 1880.”

Vice President, AMC Foam

TYPE OF BUILD 
Residential

LOCATION 
Winnipeg, MB

SIZE 
6,400 sq. ft.

YEAR BUILT 
2020

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS: The design of this house matches the timeless and iconic design of stately surrounding manors. Built with 4” core Logix ICFs, this design features 26 corners and two levels of 11’ walls over a full height 8” basement.

CONSTRUCTION FACTS: This was a winter build in cold-climate Winnipeg, Manitoba, that was further complicated by the infill lot with many mature trees. The basement features a wood structural floor.

RESILIENCE, SUSTAINABILITY & COMFORT NOTES: The air-tight Logix ICF building envelope creates a wonderfully comfortable and quiet urban dream home.

“This is the first off-grid home in the South Shore of Massachusetts, and it utilized Logix ICF and Heat Sheet products paired with Tesla solar panels and back up batteries.”

Logix ICF Territory Manager

TYPE OF BUILD 
Residential

LOCATION 
Plymouth, MA

SIZE 
3,309 sq. ft.

YEAR BUILT 
2021

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS: The builder’s goal was to build an open concept home while positioning it properly on the lot to capture the ocean views on all floor levels of this full time residence. From the footing to the walk out roof, every floor and wall is made with Logix ICFs to ensure year round comfort in New England.

CONSTRUCTION FACTS: The 8” Logix ICF was used in the garage and foundation portion, while transitioning to a 6”concrete core for the remainder of the walls. The significant open interior space was completed with large floor spans eliminating the need for supporting beams and posts, and having high ceilings on all levels.

RESILIENCE, SUSTAINABILITY & COMFORT NOTES: Since this is a ocean front property, this home had to be built to withstand strong winds, salt air, and moisture. It was essential for this project to be built with resiliency to natural disasters and to be soundproof while focusing on efficiency and sustainability.

The standard ceiling height is 9 ft with a vaulted area with a 18’ high peak ceiling height. A section of the footprint is dedicated to a fully featured in-law suite.

CONSTRUCTION FACTS: For the ICF construction, significant labor was saved by using Helix micro rebar in lieu of standard rebar. To accomplish the Step 5 design 8” Logix ICF blocks were enhanced with 2” gps foam inserts.

RESILIENCE, SUSTAINABILITY & COMFORT NOTES: This home was designed, modeled and awarded a BC Step Code 5 designation, the first Step 5 designation in Creston. An incredible air-tightness of 0.45 ACH50 was achieved. This home cost an average of $200/month to heat and cool in 2021.
