Anyone know of a good ICF installer-builder in the Fairhope/Mobile/Pensacola area?

Thanks,

Ed

Did you find an ICF installer? And how is your project progressing?

Even though this is an old thread... for anyone passing through, I thought I would post what I know.

Minard might be available for south Alabama & Florida panhandle:
minardconstruction.com/recentprojs.html

People in the Huntsville/Madison area, I saw this a while back:
uimagineit.com

I thought about doing ICF at one time myself, but it seemed like it would be too hard to find the right subs that could work with it.  Anyone on the coast would have an easier time due to hurricanes, I bet.

I talked to a builder in the Huntsville area who recommended ECO-Block, while the folks at Imagine, Inc. are doing BuildBlock.  Does anyone know who the ECO-Block installers are in the area?  Or what the differences are with these products?

Just FYI...  BuildBlock has a manufacturing facility right in Huntsville, Alabama.  I've talked with them a couple of times about my project, and they are on my "short list" of vendors I'm considering.  Very well-designed blocks that are thought out to be exceptionally installer-friendly.

I've been emailing with an O-B in Riverside, AL who used the TF System (Vertical ICF panels).  With no experience with ICF and with skilled framing laborers assisting him, he built his own walls and had a cement truck pump for him.  TF System is also on my "short list."  Supposedly it is about 30 percent faster to install than ICF blocks and has several labor-saving and quality-control advantages.

You should contact Don Hawkins with ECO-Block. His email address is d.hawkins@eco-block.com. He is the Regional Sales Manager for that area and has a list of installers from the area.

Actually the BuildBlock manufacturing is in Decatur, AL.  But that is only about 20 miles west of Huntsville. 

I'll take a look at the TF System.  Though I am looking to hire an experienced contractor to do the ICF.

We will be building an ICF house soon, it will be PolySteel.  Gary Martin is the rep for central Alabama and his team will be the subs for this.

ECO-Blocks need to be assembled on site while BB blocks come assembled. Other than that, concrete does most of the work.

We've got two Rastra-type ICF houses going in Tuscaloosa.  I was the architect for both, and both are being built by Reston Construction.  For the first one, we had the supplier erect the walls, but the Reston guys were impressed enough with the relative ease of installation that they're doing it in-house on the second one (and using real Rastra block this time).  Makes for some amazingly stout walls, and both houses are candidates for being among the first LEED for Homes certified houses in Alabama.

We have constructed several ICF homes in Fairhope as well as an area from New Orleans to Port St Joe for the past 18 years.


We use several different manufacturer's products...all have variances just as conventional cast in place forms...i.e. steel, aluminum, plyform, etc.
