Insulated Concrete Forms (I.C.F's) are at the forefront in today's sustainable building in Environmental Analysis (LCA) & it's Economic Analysis (LCC). Leading the way in both Life-cycle assessment & Life-cycle cost, I.C.F's show the benefits in environmental impact and expenses occurred over the life span of a particular structure. Compared to masonry, wood-frame, steel, and other building methods, I.C.F's have been verified to outperform all others in nearly every region and type of construction. Their recyclability, energy efficiency and disaster resistance make them one of the greenest building technologies of today. Lower costs in construction will always require higher energy inputs & higher maintenance over the lifespan of a building.
Persevering in sound absorption, I.C.F's are no surprise to top the list in quieter living & comfort. Due to sound absorption qualities in Expandable Poly Styrene (EPS), a standard 6`` concrete core wall can sustain a STC rating of 50 to 55 decibels. In comparison to wood framing, only about one-quarter to one-eighth as much sound penetrates an I.C.F wall, creating the perfect environment for apartment buildings & theaters.
With a higher performance building envelope in virtually air tight sealed walls, I.C.F's enhance a buildings performance characteristics & indoor environmental quality (IEQ) by eliminating moisture intrusion , allowing accurate climate control & management of air control. Constructed of non-toxic EPS, I.C.F's reduction of air infiltration by 75% helps to eliminate any health effects due to allergies, pollution or mold creating an almost complete absence of any emissions.

iSpan is our newest composite floor joist system. It is the most advanced solution to the elevated floor construction challenge.
SPAN TABLES are based on Vibration-Control, this is an important feature for making floors more comfortable for the occupants. The Dovetail Deck provides continuous-composite-action over the joists, this reduces (and mostly eliminates) cracks in the floor above the joists. For seismic conditions TOTALJOIST provides a simple method to collect floor loads at the perimeter of the floor and transfer them into the support system.
What makes Composite TOTALJOIST efficient is that it only requires a 3” slab (just 2 5/8” of concrete required), from bottom of deck to top of slab. Also no wire mesh is required, providing the prescribed Fiber Mesh is used, this saves time and money.
