Expert Review of your ICF plans

 

We believe that ICFs are one of the single greatest building products available.  Because of our vast experience with them, we also understand the challenges that can happen during design.

 

With this in mind, we created ICF Plan Review as a service for Homeowners, Contractors, Architects & Designers.  Our 50 point checklist will look at ICF Codes, Consistency, Continuity & Best Practices.

 

We will review your ICF home or small commercial building plans for

efficiency and affordability.  

Based on a recent survey, ICF Experts Estimate 7 out of 10
ICF plans are either Over-Designed or Lack Important Information  
This will cost you time, money, or both!

WHY REVIEW MY PLANS

Architects, Designers & Drafting Services are usually very good at what they do. However, sometimes they don’t fully understand the intricate details of the products they specify. With over 30 ICF brands available in the U.S. - each one is unique in size, shape or characteristics. ICFs are NOT "One Size Fits All".

 

After designing or consulting on hundreds of ICF structures, we have the experience to understand the characteristics of each system. We will review your plans and provide insight for you or your design professional to make your design better, more efficient, less waste - and most importantly, cost-effective.

 

  • A recent plan review for a home in Houston, TX - we were able to save over $30,000 due to excessive design specifications.   

    

  • A custom home design in Arizona had plans that provided mismatched ICF detailing and sizing.  this would have caused confusion & delays during construction with the ICF installer & inspectors.
