Our latest experiments with special coatings over ICF
walls proved very successful. We tried a new innovative material that provides
an extremely hard cover over ICF and healthy, it has no emissions and no
reactions to acids or alkalis.

At the Last Interbuild Exhibition with our
American Partners in success:
receives eight ICFA awards
OKLAHOMA CITY (May 17, 2010) Oklahoma City based BuildBlock Building
Systems recently received eight awards from the Insulated Concrete Form
Association, the premier industry recognition for the most innovative
and noteworthy ICF projects of the year.

small residence for Granite Hill home in Kingsley, MI.
The Granite Hill home and the Vineyard project also garnered recognition

Pleasant, SC which received the silver award in the large residential
category; the Rodriguez Habitat Home in Bellevue, ID which received the
silver award in the small residential category; and the Table in the
Wilderness in Laramie, WY which received the bronze award in the small
Energy savings of more than 50 percent were common for these structures.
Passive solar was integrated into design, along with supplementary
renewable energy for buildings. ICF construction provided the
cornerstone for these savings by not only providing the solid thermal
building envelope but also design opportunities due to the structural
flexibility. BuildBlock ICFs utilized in these structures also provide
fire and sound protection as well as resistance to storm winds.
BuildBlock would like to thank all of our distributors, dealers and
installers. Without you, this achievement could not be accomplished.
