At Datum BCE, when we see benefits for you, our customer, we are happy to embrace new construction technologies and methodologies. With the worldwide demand on energy soaring, we believe in offering construction solutions that minimise energy usage throughout the life of a building.
Insulated Concrete Forms or ICF is originally a Scandinavian construction technique that is now being widely adapted in Ireland and the UK. It generally involves light, premade forms that fit together as large interlocking blocks.
These forms are held together by high strength frames, and into this cavity, liquid concrete is then poured. By eliminating even the tiniest, unseen gaps that can occur in conventional block-work construction, you are ensuring an exceptionally high standard of airtightness, virtually eliminating thermal bridging.
