How much does it cost to build an ICF house?
Taking into account both the materials and labour costs, insulated concrete formwork (ICF) systems such as BecoWallform are certainly a competitive alternative to traditional brick and block and timber frame construction. Especially when like-for-like performance levels are being compared.
With insulated concrete formwork, the materials cost is usually higher than for traditional construction. However, thanks to the high build-rate achievable with ICF, the labour side of the cost equation is considerably lower, as the time-lapse video below illustrates.
Building with ICF doesn’t require the skill level of a bricklayer either.
Thus material and labour costs combined can deliver a very cost-effective solution. High performance is built in too, as demonstrated by this Award Winning Wallform ICF project that scooped the title of Build It Best Value for Money Home 2015.
How much does insulated concrete formwork cost?
For costings specific to your project, we are pleased to offer a free, no-obligation estimating service.
All you need to do is email a copy of your Planning or Building Regulations drawings to us. From these, we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of all the Wallform ICF components necessary for your project. We can tell you how much concrete your project will require to fill the formwork. We’ll also give you a guide as to the man-hours it will take an experienced Wallform builder to build and concrete the Wallform system.
To upload your project plans to us via this website, simply go to our Plans Uploader page, enter your details and attach your drawing file(s). Quotations are normally turned around within 1 to 2 weeks.
