NUDURA INSULATED CONCRETE FORM AMENDED CCMC REPORT No. 13063-R

Feb 23, 2011

After nearly 5 years of Industry wide discussions with the CCMC, NUDURAInsulated Concrete Forms Canadian Evaluation Report No. 13063-R has finally been re-issued reflecting formal compliance to the requirements of the CCMC’s 2008 issued “Technical Guide  for the Evaluation of Modular Expanded Polystrene Forms” and the 2005 National Building Code. However, anyone using or copying this report is strongly encouraged to be sure it is accompanied with NUDURA’s preface cover letter which clearly explains options for prescriptive structural design of residences that fall under the Scope of Limitations of the CCMC and Part 9 and therefore do not require site specific Engineered design. Designers, Building Officials and Contractors alike, are strongly encouraged to look to NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms Stamped Design Data instead of the CCMC structural tables for the most appropriate, comprehensive, CSA Standard Compliant design data available for use with the NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form System.

The new report is valid until November 2012. As of this posting (Feb. 23/11), the French version of the report is still being completed at the CCMC and is expected for issue in early spring. Questions regarding compliance issues for municipalities referring to the new report should be directed to your local Distributor, which in turn can direct to NUDURA Technical Services for follow-up and support for your specific issue.
