BuildBuck Accepted as Part of Full ICF Wall System for Miami Dade and Florida Building Codes
Oklahoma City, OK—BuildBlock Building Systems, manufacturer of BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs), has had its product, “BuildBuck” accepted in Miami Dade and Florida Building Codes as part of the BuildBlock ICF wall system. This action grants BuildBuck code approval in areas adhering to both Miami Dade and Florida state building codes and continues the general acceptance throughout Florida and in other coastal construction regions. Reliance on ICF building materials continues to grow nationwide through proven performance in high-velocity wind zones, wildfire-prone areas, and extreme temperatures. Adding this bucking material to ICF projects further improves thermal efficiency and increased safety.
“This is a great opportunity for not only BuildBlock but for the ICF construction industry as a whole. Because of the recent addition of our ICF bucking system, we hope architects and designers will recognize ICF product performance in Florida’s unique and often inhospitable climate to provide confidence that ICFs will perform well in other markets across the United States,” said Brian Corder, CEO of BuildBlock.
