ICF was considered the only choice available for this owner requiring the house to perform as a NUCLEAR BOMB SHELTER, Provide Protection from GUNFIRE, withstand up to a SEISMIC 8 EARTHQUAKE and be as FIREPROOF as possible!
From the start the owner’s goal was to have the most energy-efficient and sustainable structure that could be built, using the most cutting edge technology and materials available. So this owner chose LOGIX ICF which allowed the structure to get as close to a net zero efficient structure as possible.
The architect chose Logix platinum ICFs molded with Neopor as the building material of choice. The efficiency of the ICF walls, coupled with enhanced insulation using ICF foam (Fortress floor system) for the floor and ceiling offered an extremely energy-efficient envelope.
Be sure to come back to this blog over the next few weeks to hear more about the amazing challenges as this home was built and the additional benefits of using LOGIX ICF in meeting, and in some cases exceeding expectations!
