Buildings being designed and built today must be more than just aesthetically pleasing. They must be sustainable, providing measurable environmental benefits, and they must enhance the resiliency of our communities by employing materials and construction methods that anticipate future risks such as extreme weather events. The building envelope has become more complex, the detailing more critical and the expectation on the contractor to put it all together greater. Yet, owners request shorter schedules, reduced cost and longer building lifespans. Advanced concrete framing technology using insulated concrete forms is a solution to these challenges.
