Nudura partners with the Build with Strength Coalition and Habitat for Humanity

Donated concrete will strengthen affordable housing, making it more resilient and sustainable.

Department of Energy - Zero Energy Ready Home certification & Fortified GOLD certification

Build with Strength is partnering with Habitat for Humanity and Nudura to fortify decent, affordable, and sustainable housing in Hartford, Connecticut. Build With Strength is donating concrete for the construction of these Habitat homes and Nudura generously donated insulated concrete forms that will provide safe, affordable and sustainable housing in a time of great uncertainty for many. 

Backed by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA), Build with Strength is a coalition of architects, builders, engineers, emergency services personnel, policymakers, and others committed to solving challenging housing issues. Build With Strength and Habitat for Humanity International are leading these efforts nationally.


Thank you to all involved in this very important project:

Zach Davidson & Ken Lynch, Sales Managers - Helped the volunteers understand the best methods of stacking & bracing the Nudura ICF forms and took the time to make sure our hired concrete team understood how to work with the forms and use the equipment.

Bill Zarillo - Donated Habitat for Humanity with the bracing/staging equipment to support the forms and allow for the safe and efficient build of this home.

Tremco/Nudura  -  Helped educate, provided specs for the architect, sort out all the materials needed, and generously donated Nudura ICFs, fasteners, and associated materials. 

Tilcon Team -  Worked with the schedule to coordinate concrete delivery for the ENTIRE project. 

Euclid Chemical - Providing the fibers for the concrete to save time and energy. 

American Concrete Pumping -  Generously providing the equipment and labor.

NRMCA - Collaborating with Habitat for Humanity International to support affiliates across the country. Generously involving Habitat for Humanity with the Build with Strength program. Bringing all the key people and businesses together to create this incredible opportunity.
