NUDURA Facilitates Green Building Within the Design Community

BARRIE, ON--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - NUDURA Corporation has an expansive partnership with architects through an extensive range of trainings and support materials. At the center of this partnership is the Design Specification Manual. The critical document was written to assist architects with commercial construction and reflects one of the many ways NUDURA continues to promote and support green building material in creating new homes, buildings and structures through the use of ICF products.

One of the first advantages of using insulated concrete forms in home and commercial construction is a significant reduction in energy costs. The energy efficiency of ICF and other related NUDURA products makes sense in a strained economic climate and a growing trend towards construction that works toward the health of the planet and the benefit of its people. From the business side of construction, architects and builders enjoy the lower shipping costs and easy assemblage.

The NUDURA Design Specification Manual will efficiently assist architects with changes to building design and the integration of NUDURA insulated concrete forms into the design process. The manual also highlights NUDURA's contribution to LEED, an internationally established and well-regarded green building certification system. Some other positive features of the manual include access to more than 400 green building-related materials via an easy to use interactive CD.

After receiving the manual and registering, architects will receive regular electronic updates featuring the latest innovations and changes in the world of ICF. The manual will connect architects to ongoing technical support through authorized NUDURA distributors. The manual is also a great tool to use alongside one of NUDURA's Continuing Education Sessions.

With the most wide-ranging ICFs available on the marketplace today, NUDURA continues to make great inroads in the world of green building with its efficient concrete homes and commercial structures.
