Green Building & Sustainability

          You have heard about the benefits of building with ( I-BLOCK ) which based on Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) walls for years. ( I-BLOCK ) are proven energy efficient products that have been well documented to significantly reduce heating and cooling loads in buildings. These products are typically foam stay-in-place concrete forms specified for projects designed to provide high performance building envelope walls.

Environmental Facts

  • High Thermal Values Reduce energy costs
  • Uses recycled materials whenever possible
  • Uses no CFCs or HCFCs & Emits no fumes or gasses
  • 8 Energy Star Home rating
  • Has a lifecycle of over 150 years
  • Improves indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • Reduces mold problem
  • Minimizes construction wastes to three percent or less

Reduction in Energy Costs

     (I-Block) buildings consistently reduce monthly utility costs over the life of the structure. In turn, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system can be sized appropriately to reap even more savings.

Manufacturing & Recycling

     From the initial manufacturing of (I-Block) product to the construction site to finished structure, I-Block has designed its system and process to be kind to the environment.

In addition to manufacturing under environmentally clean conditions, I-Block forms are 50 percent more efficient to ship and handle than other ICFs systems.

I-Block reduce the pressure on precious natural resources by replacing timber used in bracing traditional construction, with an environmentally clean product. No CFCs, HCFCs or other ozone-depleting substances are used or released during any process. Manufacturing waste is negligible and construction waste is also minimal.
