Resilient Building Construction with Insulated Concrete Forms
Rebuilding after a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or tornado, can be a daunting task. With Miami-Dade approved Quad-Lock ICFs you can quickly rebuild bunker-strong and ultra-efficient building shells that increase occupant safety, health & comfort, significantly reduce costs of insurance, and cut their environmental footprint & energy costs.

Storm Resistance - ICF buildings can be designed to stand up to hurricanes and most tornadoes
Impact Resistance - ICF walls and roofs can withstand the impact of most flying debris from extreme winds with little or no structural damage. Even a flying car was stopped by Quad-Lock walls, with zero structural damage!
Seismic Resistance - the steel reinforcement and concrete can be designed to minimize the risk of building collapse due to earthquakes
Flood Resistance - as seen in many coastal communities for decades, raising the entire building off the ground simply makes flood waters stay below the main structure causing minimal, if any, damage.
Quad-Lock's Insulating Concrete Forms accomplish all of the above, plus:
Blast Resistance - as proven to and adopted by the US Armed Forces, ICFs provide superior blast protection because high-density EPS absorbs blast-energy before it reaches the reinforced concrete core (which itself is bunker-technology)
Fast Rebuilding - by combining many construction steps into one step, often shaving weeks or months off construction schedules and financing budgets
Better Health & Comfort - peace & quiet, no drafts or cold spots, improved & controllable indoor air quality, no food source for mold
Ultra Energy Efficiency - high & continuous insulation blanket and low air-infiltration are built-in to provide significant energy savings
