Build Block Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) offer several advantages and benefits when used for constructing buildings and homes, such as:
Energy efficiency: ICFs provide excellent insulation, which helps to reduce energy consumption and costs associated with heating and cooling the building.
Durability: ICF structures are incredibly strong and resistant to natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes.
Sound insulation: The insulation properties of ICFs also help to reduce sound transmission, making the building quieter and more comfortable.
Low maintenance: ICFs require minimal maintenance, and they don’t rot or decay, which means they last longer than traditional building materials.
Faster construction: Using ICFs can significantly speed up the construction process because they are quick and easy to install, reducing labor costs and time.
Improved indoor air quality: The air-tight construction of ICFs reduces the infiltration of outside air, which helps to improve indoor air quality.
Sustainable: ICFs are made from environmentally friendly materials, which make them a sustainable choice for construction.
Overall, using Build Block ICFs offers an excellent opportunity to build more durable, energy-efficient, and comfortable buildings and homes, while also reducing construction time and environmental impact.

Build Block Costa Rica School Launches with 37 Students Attending First Course
September 29, 2023 – We are proud to report that 37 people from Costa Rica attended our first training course today at the Build Block Costa Rica School to become a Certified Build Block Insulated Concrete Form Installer.
All of those we spoke to upon arrival, said that they were excited about learning this new and better construction method, which will mean jobs for them in the near future.
They found the initial part of the course easy to comprehend and they then began to practice the instructions given, working together to perform a few designated exercises, as you will see in the video:
