Eco ICF Builders & Supplies
Eco ICF with Eskydeck is a complete construction solution with built in resilience, sustainability and comfort. Eco ICF Builders & Supplies are the only manufacturers and builders that have a complete ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) building system. We use Eco ICF blocks for the walls and Eskydeck for the floors & roofs which can include green roofs. Eskydeck is the strongest, most user friendly, energy efficient floor & roof system currently available in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Regions. Eskydeck is a fully functional integrated floor & roof system to suit ICF walls. We manufacture all the accessories here in Australia which makes ICF user friendly and extremely efficient, while at the same time making the job more cost effective. This is the best ICF construction method in Australia and is made in Australia for Australian conditions.
Eco ICF homes and buildings are made from moulded concrete designed to last 100+ years and can achieve 8-10 star rating easily. Beautiful homes are built using Eco ICF Builders & Supplies products.
The Basics of ICF
The principles of ICF are where you lock up the thermal mass, the concrete, with two insulating panels that keep the thermal mass at a constant tem perature, therefore it doesn't ;matter whether you have a blizzard or a firestorm outisde, it remains at a constant temperature inside.
Simpler, Faster, Better
Eco ICF Block Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) represent the superior way to build. This revolutionary method of construction is also the simplest. Eco ICF Block Insulating Concrete Forms are EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) panels that easily snap together to create walls of virtually any thickness. The space between the panels is filled with concrete that cures and hardens into a reinforced core of incredible strength.
The Eco ICF Block system gets the job done faster, taking less time to build with fewer people. You also save on transportation costs and delivery time, because our blocks are packed flat. Eco ICF Blocks are therefore easier to transport and handle than any other fixed block.
Energy savings generated by an Eco ICF building are enormous and continue for the life of the building. It is also better, because Eco ICF buildings are vastly more energy efficient. Stronger, quieter, resistant to fire, moisture, mould and the elements together with a positive ecological impact. This is by far the better way to build and these are some of the many advantages:
Significant energy savings
Reduced noise transmission
Will not support the growth of mould or mildew
Can be built to any seismic or hurricane storm standard
Up to a four hour Fire Resistive Rating
No Limits to Design
Eco ICF blocks gives you unlimited design flexibility. Got a saw? Eco ICF blocks cut easily into any shape you need which is perfect for unique window openings and arches. You can also choose from our pre formed corners in varying sizes and angles. Any exterior or interior finish can also be directly applied to the panels.
Build from the footing to the roofline, using one crew, one system
Form walls 100mm thick and greater in any configuration
Create any shape or contour or design you choose
Apply any exterior or interior finish
