Life Long Benefits of ICF Churches
Safe and Disaster Resilient
BuildBlock ICFs utilize one of the worlds strongest building materials, steel reinforced concrete. Churches built with ICFs are resistant to fire, high winds, tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes.

Incredible Sound Attenuation
BuildBlock ICF forms are comprised of two, 2 1/2″ panels of EPS foam on either side of a concrete wall. When combined, these walls are practically soundproof. Noise pollution from outside stays where it belongs while music and other audio inside is enhanced to studio quality. Click to learn about the Sounds Performance of ICFs.
