Forming Solutions is an (ICF) Insulated Concrete Form distributor established in 1998. We provide a high performance concrete wall system to contractors & developers throughout southern California. We do have for hire an exclusively designed Alignment System that allows contractors to deliver straight, plumb walls while providing a safe working platform that exceeds OSHA requirements.


Since 1998 we have continually provided top quality ICF products and technical knowledge to our customers. Tony Penna (CEO) & Joe Penna (VP) built the business on a need to create environmental concern, economic savings and education in energy conservation.

Insulated Concrete Forms provide homeowners and businesses with improved indoor air quality, comfortability, tranquility, reduced heating and cooling costs, safety, security and greater production in development. In addition, I.C.F’s contribute to LEED points and higher HERS scores, increasing development values. Insulated Concrete Forms are constantly breaking the mold in R&D developing the highest quality of strength and comfort.

Tony Penna has been in the construction industry over multiple years and most of that time was dedicated to masonry and concrete specifically in south Orange County. He has worked with many different forming systems through out his career. Beginning in 1998, he was offered to take a training course in Insulated Concrete Forms. Now with Fox Blocks as our flagship product, ICF systems proved to be a great product that inspired Tony and his brother Joe to become the acclaimed distributors and technicians of I.C.F in southern California. Due to Tony’s extensive experience, he has worked with and trained many contractors in Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego with successful, beautiful and now award winning installations of the product.
