ICF or insulated concrete formwork has recently grown in popularity to become one of Ireland’s alternative modern methods of construction.  ICF is a system of explanatory polystyrene rigid insulation blocks which are separated by plastic webbing. ICF construction has two advantages in terms of the energy performance.  First it seals very well, preventing air leaking through the walls. Secondly, it has two continuous insulation layers, one inside and one outside, with no thermal bridges therefore reducing heat loss. ICF homes are estimated to have a life span of over 100 years within minimal maintenance required as the foam will not degrade.
