Pennsylvania State Affiliate Produces Video on ICF Construction

The Pennsylvania Aggregate & Concrete Association (PACA) recently hosted a site tour of a 5-story ICF apartment building being developed by Byler Holdings of South Central PA. PACA President Peter Vlahos and Director of Concrete Promotion & Certifications Ken Crank joined NRMCA Senior Director, Building Innovations, Doug O’Neill and the Byler Holdings team to discuss how and why this project was converted from stick frame to concrete. A site tour (show here) was then conducted showcasing the actual construction and a meet and greet with ICF Contractor Streamline Construction.

This developer not only chose concrete for this conversion, but also selected concrete pavement at a newly-built Fairfield Inn within this development, titled North Cornwall Commons. It also announced that another 5-story apartment building will be built adjacent to the current site that will be ICF as well. The opportunity for more ICF construction within this development is strong, especially with the continued rise of wood framing costs, O'Neill reported.

PACA and Build With Strength PA helped fund the production of a video titled Building Smarter & Better - North Cornwall Commons that highlighted the day’s events.
