NUDURA Is a Finalist for Their Insulated Concrete Form Construction

BARRIE, ON--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - The Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF) Builders Awards, sponsored by ICF Builder Magazine, just announced that NUDURA is a finalist in the heavy commercial division of the 2009 contest. They are being recognized for their concrete schools work on the Emma B. Ward Elementary School in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The winners of the fifth annual competition will be named at an evening event at World of Concrete 2009, held in Las Vegas the first week of February.

Thanks to the NUDURA products used in the construction, the Emma B. Ward Elementary School is operating as the second best school building in the state of Kentucky for energy consumption. Through the use of insulated concrete form construction the school is also awaiting the Energy Star Rating for its energy performance.

The ICF Builder Awards are designed to recognize those who deal with ICFs in some manner. They are recognized because homes and businesses that are built from insulated concrete form construction are energy-efficient, fire-resistant, soundproof, and durable. If these concrete schools are properly constructed they can also stand up to earthquakes, fire and other natural disasters as well. They often find that their heating and air conditioning costs are reduced by 50 to 70 percent.

The competition for the 2009 ICF Builders Awards is expected to be the biggest and best in the event's history. With the 2008 competition breaking all previous contest records, 2009 is expected to be even better than last year's highly successful event. NUDURA was entered into the contest under the heavy commercial division. This means that the NUDURA products were used for commercial insulated concrete form construction costing more than $5 million to construct. This category included submissions from cinema multiplexes, large office and retail buildings, apartment complexes and condominiums.

The fact that NUDURA was listed as one of the top finalists speaks highly of the quality of their work. NUDURA will wait expectantly for the award ceremony in February to see if they will win the award for their division. Those who use NUDURA products always find that their professionalism and quality exceeds their expectations.
