Six facilities across the country – constructed with insulated concrete forms manufactured by Fox Blocks – have earned national awards for affordability and energy efficiency.

The winning commercial and residential projects, spanning the United States and the Caribbean, were announced recently as part of the ICF Builder Awards, an international competition designed to showcase the advantage of building with insulated concrete forms, known as ICFs. The awards were handed out in conjunction with the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas.

Each project was cited for the complexity of its design, architecture and challenges faced during construction.

“The variety and scale of projects being built with ICFs is truly astounding,” said Clark Ricks, executive director of ICF Builder Group and organizer of the competition. “It’s time these outstanding projects received recognition, and we feel privileged to take a leading role in that.”
