The next stage of the project sees really fast progress. Using the Nudura ICF system, the outside walls are quickly erected. Almost like giant lego, the blocks sit securely on top of each other and are locked into place with the Duralock technology. Another advantage of this great system is that it allows us to design and build our own lintels in situ.
Once we were up to the first floor level we were ready for the first concrete pour, providing strength and resilience to the whole structure. The result of using this particular ICF system is that you get a superb 0.24 wall U-value, which results in extremely energy-efficient homes with low running costs. Who wouldn't want that?
