NRMCA Teams with Nebraska on ICF Training Event

The Nebraska Concrete & Aggregates Association and the Insulating Concrete Forms Manufacturers Association (ICFMA) recently hosted an insulated concrete forms (ICF) installation training event to promote construction among the build community, reports NRMCA Project Manager, Concrete Promotion, Derek Torres. ICFs are quickly becoming the method of choice for all forms of construction due to attributes such as speed and safe construction, operation maintenance and energy savings, resilience, sound control and building insurance discounts. These benefits are creating ICF project demand and this training is delivering a knowledgeable contractor workforce that can augment its portfolio of construction services.

At right, attendees included a wide range of construction professionals, such as architects, engineers, concrete contractors and ready mixed concrete producers.

Build With Strength (BWS) has recently partnered with ICFMA and launched ICF contractor training. The training is driven locally by NRMCA state affiliates and is targeting concrete contractors, framers, masons and other construction personnel who will learn the techniques to expand their construction services portfolio and be more competitive in today’s construction environment.

As part of BWS campaign, NRMCA promotes sustainable concrete solutions for buildings. For more information, contact Derek Torres at or 973-876-0938.
