Hawaii ICF Project Update

June 16, 2017

Over the course of the last few months, Winsome has been operating as a consultant and sub-contractor for an ICF Construction project in Hawaii.  Located in the green, rolling hills of Waimea, this 4,061 square foot custom home has been the recipient of our team’s extensive knowledge regarding the correct implementation of ICFs.

Bob Shipley, Winsome’s seasoned ICF subcontractor and advisor, recently returned from a second visit to the remote job.  Bob ensured that the walls were properly braced and installed required reinforcements before giving the green light to fill the forms with concrete. Even with the bracing, forms need to be filled at an appropriate rate based on manufacturer recommendation to prevent misalignment and blowouts.

This visit completes Winsome’s portion of the Hawaii project and leaves the home with high-performing walls that are structurally sound, insulated, strapped and have a vapor barrier.  We are glad we were able to share our expertise and successfully guide the project to the next phase of construction.
