Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) has been used in Europe and North America for many years and has proved to be an extremely solid, cost-effective and fast-track method of construction. Formcraft has invested in cutting edge manufacturing and design technology to make Formcraft ICF the leading product of its type in Australia. Products are manufactured in our Kewdale facility in Western Australia. A variety of structures from retaining walls and residential houses to mining camps and multi-storey developments are increasingly being built using these methods. The Formcraft wall system uses fiber cement and / or insulating panels as a form to accept steel reinforced concrete. Once the concrete hardens, you have a wall system that outperforms traditional construction methods. Formcraft also offers a number of complementary construction systems including:- 1. FormDeck – insulated suspended slab systems, 2. Formview - double glazed windows and doors 3. FormTilt – insulated tilt panels
In Australia as in many other parts of the world there is a growing emphasis on environmental sustainability, immediacy and minimizing energy consumption. These are all values that we wanted to incorporate in an innovative construction system using energy efficient materials and having broad market appeal.
