Nudura Insulated Concrete Form (ICF)
Insulating Concrete Formwork | ICFs | from NUDURA provide design professionals, architects, home owners and contractors a more efficient way to build. Building with Insulating Concrete Formwork allow homes and commercial buildings to be built stronger, more energy efficient, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly. Insulating Concrete Formwork provides greater energy solutions for any structure.
Insulating Concrete Formwork uses polystyrene connected with a web system that allow the forms to be stacked and steel reinforced. The polystyrene forms are then built up on site and filled with ready-mixed concrete. The polystyrene combined with the concrete offer provide a thermal mass, allowing structures to be heated and cooled more effectively. U-values between 0.11 and 0.24 w/m2 are achievable with heat cost reductions of up to 70%.
Timber Frame Construction
Timber frame construction uses pre-fabricated (off-site manufacture) external and internal stud walls, floor joists and roof trusses to form the super-structure which is a complete structural frame that transfers the vertical and horizontal loads to the foundations.
The timber frame structure can then be clad in brick, wood, fibre cement board, rendered or tiled which will act as the decoration for the home as well as weather protection. The external cladding would be installed on site.
