Thermal and Acoustics Solutions held a presentation on Insulating Concrete Formwork by NUDURA.
Jean Marc Bouvier heads the UK arm of Nudura, a Canadian-based business that sells its ‘lego’ style, folding ICF blocks. Jean Marc Bouvier gave an insight to a new, fresh approach to building. Jean Marc Bouvier started his presentation by saying 'Insulating Concrete Formwork from NUDURA provide design professionals, architects, home owners and contractors a more efficient way to build. Building with Insulating Concrete Formwork allow homes and commercial buildings to be built stronger, more energy efficient, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly. Insulating Concrete Formwork provides greater energy solutions for any structure.' Jean Marc Bouvier went on to say that NUDURA was fireproof, bomb proof, hurricane proof and water proof.
In a recent interview with Homebuilder Magazine. Jean Marc Bouvier stated.
“The Green Building Council has stated that the UK’s housing stock is among the least energy efficient in Europe, and is responsible for nearly a quarter of our annual carbon emissions. Yet we are the slowest market in the world to pick up on the benefits of ICF.
Why we keep on building with cavity walls when ICF is just way superior, I do not know; they are quick and easy to construct and the finished standard is much higher. You don’t get problems with damp penetration or mould, you get fabulous airtightness levels built in and whatever insulation level you require is easily accommodated. All with a much thinner wall thickness.”
