Environmentally Friendly Building with NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms

Green Building begins with NUDURA ICFsBetter Buildings
for Our Environment

Not only are NUDURA structures, stronger, safer, more energy efficient and faster to build, they contribute significantly to a “Greener” building envelope. When you build with NUDURA ICF's you will be saving valuable environmental resources. NUDURA's unique technological design also allows for minimal waste during the construction process, reducing the amount of waste sent to our landfills.

NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms provide durable green building technologyEnergy Efficient

With NUDURA's durable Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) green building technology, it is possible to build long lasting concrete homes with high energy efficiency. It is no longer reasonable to construct homes that only last 20-30 years and have excessive heat and energy loss factors.

A Healthier Living Environment

NUDURA combines the use of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam with reinforced concrete, creating a home that is extremely moisture resistant. The NUDURA Wall System eliminates gaps where mold forms, unlike traditional building methods where moisture gets trapped during the building phase. NUDURA's tight construction allows operational equipment to heat, cool and ventilate your home more efficiently, creating a healthier living environment. The operating efficiency provided by NUDURA makes the air in your home cleaner to breath.

NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms make Green Building Easy

NUDURA Green Building Lend a Hand


NUDURA is committed to improving the building process by manufacturing products that have minimal impact on the environment. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms or ICF's combine the use of polystyrene (EPS) foam with reinforced concrete. The synergy of these materials forms a structure that is extremely energy efficient by as much as up to 70%, air tight and moisture resistant. NUDURA's inner fluted insulation panels bond with the concrete

form to eliminate air gaps, minimizing the potential formation of mold growth
and draft paths. The end result is a comfortably enclosed space that enables building mechanical systems to heat, cool and ventilate the structure more efficiently, creating a healthier living and working environment.
