The Six Easy Steps
1 - Footings
A strip footing foundation is prepared. Strip footings are generally easier to setup than the isolated footings found in traditional construction.
2 - Stacking
The forms are stacked on top of one another like lego bricks to build up the walls. Opening for the windows and doors are accounted for as well.
3 - Rebar
Horizontal rebar is clicked into place along each course. When the wall height is finsihed the vertical rebar is fed through.
4 - Alignment
The aligment system is setup to ensure all the walls are positioned accurately for the concrete pour. NUDURA has its own bracing system which can be used.
5 - Concrete Pour
A concrete pump is used to fill the core of the forms. Once the concrete dries, the result is immensly stong reinforced, monolithic concrete wall.
6 - Services and Roofing
The floors and roofing are placed when the concrete has dried. The service pipes are chased through the foam of the ICF blocks.
