Project description

Insulating Concrete Framework

Insulating Concrete Framework (ICF) walling is a construction method used for its ease of construction and insulating benefits. In a ICF system a framework made from insulating material usually expanded polystyrene or recycled wooden pallets made in 440mm length x 215mm depth x 215mm width designed to lock into each other similar to LEGO bricks allowing the build to not require binder materials such as mortar. Once the framework is in place concrete is poured in up to a height of 3 meters ( We advise in case of a fracture in the materials )

When this sets the structure is strong and has a high excellent u value. The method of which ICF forms are created allow them to be moulded into various shapes and designs as well as requiring less labour and time to build. The use of thick concrete also provides exceptional sound insulation and prevents air leakage into a dwelling.

Timber Frame buildings / homes

Timber Frame homes are getting more popular for many reasons mainly the excellent u values also the rapid construction of the frame allowing trades to get started while the bricklayers can install the brickwork skin. Here at Manchester brickwork we are fully conversant with the strict tolerances needed in the foundation building process.
