Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) Services

Over the past several years, concrete wall construction has taken a foothold in residential and commercial developments. By using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF), not only has it been possible to economically produce concrete wall elements, but the heat insulation properties (R-value) of the finished elements have been dramatically increased over that of conventional, insulated wood framing. With the recent substantial increases in lumber and plywood prices, ICF construction is now cost-comparable with conventional framing. Over the next 5-10 years, DGE expects ICF construction to continue to be an economically viable construction method for these types of projects, and to substantially increase in market share. There are many occasions where established prescriptive design methods are applicable to residential projects. However, because of code applicability limits, many jurisdictions require an ICF project to be designed and sealed by a Licensed Professional Engineer. DGE is pleased to be able to offer effective and economic design for ICF elements, and to assist their clients with the permit approval process.
