Let’s delve into the details of this project, including challenges and the rationale behind choosing Eco Block ICFs.
Home build in Sydney: the design
Eco Block collaborated with a draftsman to create a Sydney house that optimises the expanding site without sacrificing its single-level nature.
The design ensures only one step throughout the property, making it effortlessly accessible for people of all ages. The unique V-shaped structure encloses a charming courtyard and a refreshing pool at its heart.
Custom home builders Sydney: why choose ICF
Eco Block, a sustainable building material, was the clear choice for constructing this custom Sydney home that sought to enhance insulation while maintaining structural strength using concrete.
Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) were chosen as the blocks create sturdy walls with exceptional thermal performance. The decision to opt for Eco block and ICF also meant an eco-friendly dwelling for the residence and provided numerous benefits beyond traditional construction materials.
Insulated concrete formwork: the process
The construction of this Sydney residential home involved laying out blocks and interlocking them before filling them with concrete.
When it comes to building homes with tall walls, there is a need for extra support and reinforcement. The 6.8-meter-high great room wall in this Sydney home build presented quite a challenge. However, using Eco block Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) proved the perfect solution. Eco block ICFs are designed to provide enhanced stability and strength, making them ideal for constructing buildings with taller walls. The additional bracing and ply packing required for these tall walls were easily accommodated by the Eco block system, ensuring the durability and longevity of the structure.
ICF Sydney: the result
The Sydney home build utilising insulated concrete formwork showcases a remarkably energy-efficient design and provides exceptional insulation, energy efficiency, soundproofing, and fire resistance.
This structure ensures long-lasting durability while also boasting an aesthetically pleasing visual appeal.
