Key factors considered in being chosen for these awards were affordability, energy efficiency, complexity of design, striking architecture, and the challenges the construction team faced and overcame during the build – setting a new standard for the entire ICF industry. Without the cooperation of a wide array of team players, these wins could not be achieved. We thank our dealers, distributors, and installers that contributed to the construction of these outstanding projects, as well as the many developers, architects, engineers, and building owner that have recommended and specified our product. We would also like to thank the organizers of the annual Builder Awards for their continued support and dedication to the ICF industry. Congratulations to all who participated!
