Nudura ICF

Pete and Sarah, the self-builders at Cow Shed Barn Cambridgeshire, wanted a construction solution that allowed them to have a very hands on approach and in their own words said:

“From installing the first block to cutting the gables on the front elevations, Nudura, provided by ICF Supplies Ltd, allowed us to be in control of our own build. The support that comes as part of their service is so valuable for first time builders. From the training course to onsite guidance and answering queries over the phone to being on hand to help take the stress out of the concrete pours.

The Nudura system was of particular benefit as Cow Shed Barn is a partially sunken house, ICF is well suited to making basements by simply using waterproof concrete and a suitable waterproofing system below ground.

Energy efficiency and future low running costs were high on the agenda, so with the air tightness and insulation benefits Nudura ICF was the ideal product.

The house is over two floors and includes an internal structural ICF wall allowing for a cantilevered staircase to be erected.  The house is made up of an open plan kitchen/living/dining area, snug, gym, office and four bedrooms.

We really enjoyed working with Nudura products and the team at ICF Supplies.  This construction method is really easy for active self builders to learn and become very involved in the assembly process of the building”.
