Amvic Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) is an excellent green building alternative. The polypropylene webs are placed 6” vs. 8” o/c, allowing most cut-off pieces to be re-used which can result in less than 1% construction waste compared to 6%. The webs are also manufactured using 100% recycled polypropylene making the product over 60% recycled material by weight. Amvic ICF structures also require 30-50% less energy to heat and cool, improve indoor air quality and require less maintenance over time. In addition, Amvic recently conducted an industry leading third party LEED Product Assessment which proved that using Amvic ICF can result in up to 28 points!
