New School in Colorado Uses ICF Construction

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Students returning to the South Conejos PK-12 School in Antonito, CO, are enjoying a new energy efficient, disaster resistant building thanks to concrete and insulated concrete form (ICF) construction, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen.

The combination of ICF filled with local concrete was used on over 35,000 square feet of exterior wall, with heights varying from 16 feet to 24 feet. One outstanding feature of the project is the 30 foot diameter "kiva room" that has walls 24 feet tall, all formed and cast using the versatility of the concrete/ICF construction.

The general contractor for the project was Alcon Construction Inc. with the ICF portion built by SLV Quality Concrete Inc. of Colorado. As many will remember, SLV Quality Concrete was the contractor that paved the concrete overlay at the Pinehurst Country Club in Denver.
