Insulated Concrete Form Hotels Are Hot

Apr 10, 2007
Concrete Construction Magazine- This news brief details how ICFs are becoming more popular for hotel construction- a method that until recently was restricted to low-rise, and mostly residential applications.

"We see more ICFs being used for hotel construction," says Joe Lake, president of Eco-Block. "I think it is an optimal application for a variety of reasons. The first is, of course, energy conservation. But beyond that a lot of hotels are being built near freeways where there's 24-hour noise that can infiltrate a typical frame structure. ICFs control the sound within a structure to provide a more enjoyable space- particularly in the extended stay type of hotels."
