Building with Fox Blocks allowed for smaller heating and cooling equipment, fiber cement board siding for low maintenance on the exterior, and metal shingles on the roof, and all window casings were low- to no-maintenance materials, making this an energy-efficient project that will offer savings for years to come.
This project was completed within budget, and no additional construction costs were incurred by using ICFs. The three apartments on the lower floors will provide income for the building owner, who plans to live in the penthouse.
The ICF was installed in 31 days with a total project construction time of 80 weeks. While the project had been a dream of the owner’s for many years, the build itself was fast and was completed on time as expected.
