Home Designs adapted for the ECO-Block Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) system.

 

ECO-Block Insulating Concrete Forms represent the superior way to build. ECO-Block is simpler and easier to install than wood-frame methods — and even other ICF systems. It’s faster, taking less time with fewer people. And it’s better, because ECO-Block buildings are vastly more energy-efficient. Stronger. Quieter. Resistant to fire, moisture, mold and the elements. With a positive ecological impact.

 

Simpler Construction

This state-of-the-art method of construction is also the simplest. ECO-Block insulating concrete forms are EPS (expanded polystyrene) panels that easily snap together to create walls of virtually any thickness, from 4” on up in 2 ” increments. The space between the panels is filled with concrete that cures and hardens into a monolithic, reinforced core of incredible strength.

 

Job Done Faster

The ECO-Block system gets the job done faster. With our multiple manufacturing locations throughout North America, you save on transportation costs and delivery time. Because our flat panels can be packed tightly, ECO-Block is easier to ship and handle than other fixed-block ICFs.

 

Better Way to Build

This is the better way to build, period. Energy savings generated by an ECO-Block building are enormous — and continue for the life of the building. You save on utility and maintenance costs. ECO-Block buildings stand strong against the wind and weather and will not warp over time. They can have up to a four-hour Fire Resistive Rating. And many companies give discounts to ICF building owners for disaster and fire insurance.

 

Design Basics worked with ECO-Block to adapt 24 of our home plans for use with ECO-Block Insulated Concrete Forms. ECO-Block ICF's offer many advantages to traditional block or poured foundations and wall framing.
