Sustainable Design Using ICFs

Projects specifying Nudura insulated concrete forms save valuable environmental resources and reduce energy consumption and C02 emissions, two major factors in today’s commercial and residential construction. Nudura ICF walls create high performance building envelopes to maximize energy efficiency, prevent heat loss, and eliminate thermal bridging. Net-zero, or zero energy, goals are also feasible with ICF construction.

Nudura is proud to contribute to LEED programs, the Passive House Standard and the Living Building ChallengeNudura also meets ISO14001 standards, has obtained Declare Labels for all manufacturing facilities in North America and is committed to standards and practices that promote environmental protection and pollution prevention.



RECYCLED MATERIALS - Nudura ICF block systems are manufactured from EPS. Nudura’s unique DURAFOLD Technology web design is manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene and steel.

BUILDING DURABILITY – Nudura ICF Blocks offer a structure built out of Concrete, one of the most durable and energy-efficient building materials, resulting in buildings that stand the test of time. Building with Nudura also offers maximum safety in high wind areas due to its high impact resistance.

WASTE REDUCTION – Nudura offers unique technological ICF Block design which creates less waste during the construction process, sending less waste to our landfills. *All waste is 100% recyclable.

MOLD RESISTANT- Nudura Forms have been laboratory tested and will not support mold growth.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE - Nudura ICF Blocks significantly reduce the number of carbon emissions, due to the structure's high energy efficiency levels, reducing the number of fossil fuels needed for heating and cooling reducing your carbon footprint.

IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY – Nudura eliminates air gaps, minimizing the potential formation of mold growth and draft paths. The end result is an airtight structure that enables building mechanical systems to heat, cool, and ventilate the ICF block structure more efficiently, creating a healthier living and working environment for building occupants
