 Insulating Concrete Forms For Multifamily Residential Construction

Presented By: Chris Dagosta, NRMCA Senior Director of Building Innovations

Wednesday | 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m

About the Topic: This presentation provides guidance for architects, engineers, and builders on how to design and build high performance reinforced concrete multifamily residential buildings using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). Combining the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility of highly engineered rigid insulation, ICFs provide ideal solutions for apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories, and assisted living facilities. ICFs offer fire resistance and noise reduction qualities, important features when designing multifamily residential buildings. They are also remarkably cost effective as the thermal properties of ICFs can offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The presentation will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF concrete construction to take full advantage of these benefits, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value building owners.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basic design criteria and construction elements of concrete building built with Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) for multifamily residential projects.
  • Demonstrate the economic benefits of building multifamily projects with ICFs.
  • Recognize the energy efficiency characteristics of ICF for multifamily construction.
  • Understand the contribution concrete makes to a building's resilience to natural disasters, including fire, flood, wind, and earthquakes.
