An energy efficient and durable building envelope is the starting point to creating a sustainable structure
and home. Many building systems and products rely on the envelope to operate efficiently, creating a
synergetic relationship. We believe the best system to create the most efficient envelope is insulating
concrete forms also known as ICF, or Insulated Concrete Forms.
Insulated Concrete Forms are a wall forming system using two rigid panels of expandable polystyrene foam held together with
a plastic (polypropylene) web tie. Steel reinforcement is placed inside the cavity of the ICF and held in
place by the web ties. Concrete is then placed into the cavity to create the solid, steel reinforced wall
with the rigid foam panels staying in place to provide continuous thermal insulation on both exterior and
interior sides of the wall.
Insulated Concrete Form Construction is a green and sustainable building system that delivers a wall
that is highly energy efficient, structurally superior and has higher levels of fire resistance and sound
suppression. ICF construction is fast and cost effective. ICF walls meet all the challenges that the various
Florida climates demand, coastal and inland, with protection against severe weather events, insulation
to keep out the Florida heat and humidity, and security to defend against fire, mold and pests.
Turning Leaf Construction provides expert installation services for ICF walls. Our trained, certified and
professional installation team collectively brings more than 40 years of ICF wall installation experience.
We have the most up-to-date equipment to support our skilled team members and rely on our excellent
relationships with the ICF manufacturers to assure our clients receive the most accurate and relevant
technical, product and installation support.
