This webinar presents information and tools structural
engineers can use to select and design Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). ICFs combine the strength and durability of
reinforced concrete with the energy efficiency of rigid insulation, providing
an ideal solution for multi-family, commercial and institutional applications.
The webinar will explore the evolution of ICFs and their growth from single
family in the late early 1990s to a mainstream structural system for single
story retail to high-rise residential. The presentation will discuss
preliminary wall sizing and placement along with structural design
considerations including design details and construction inspections. With a
competitive first cost, ICFs improves occupant safety, fire resistance and
noise transmission for office, hospital, school and retail buildings, among
others. The presentation will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost
of ICF construction to take full advantage of these benefits, resulting in long-term value for building owners.
