Design and Construction using Insulating Concrete Formwork

Publisher:MPA The Concrete Centre

Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) is a recognised modern method of construction. It is a simple method of concrete wall construction where the polystyrene 'formwork' is left in place to provide insulation to the wall. The guide covers ICF wall design to both BS 8110 and Eurocode 2 and demonstrates that in many cases ICF walls do not require main reinforcement. The guide covers the specification of ICF as well as construction and workmanship aspects.
