ICF Construction with a Local School

We are constructing 80 houses in Dunleer, Co. Louth, Ireland using a insulated concrete form (ICF). The ICF blocks are a lightweight polystyrene block, that is filled with concrete once installed. Constructing the ICF walls involves slotting one block into another and can easily be completed by anyone.

We engaged with the local school and arranged an activity on site, to allow the school children to build a small house using the ICF blocks to give them an insight into construction and to also talk about the environmental impact of the ICF block, i.e. how airtight or fire proof they are etc. The children worked well with the blocks and were able to form a small structure within a few minutes.

This was very well received by the school, so much so that they had a further six visits with all the other classes in the school.
