Here is a simple outline of the NUDURA I.C.F. build process.
For examples of finished NUDURA homes in Ireland, please visit our Gallery
Foundations are prepared as normal, and rising walls are constructed with NUDURA.
Floor insulation and all services are installed as in a standard build.
NUDURA’s wall system is quick and easy to erect.
The lightweight formwork simply clicks into place – like oversized Lego!
Walls must be properly supported with braces before concrete is poured.
Concrete is poured into the NUDURA formwork structure.
Concrete is vibrated into place to ensure consolidation.
The insulating formwork stays in place when the concrete sets – to provide a complete envelope of insulation around the structure, both inside and out.
The NUDURA build system is compatible with any type of floor system.
Timber, metal, or precast concrete floors can be used.
Roof structure is put onto the NUDURA I.C.F. structure as in a standard build.
Roof is completed and windows are installed ready for external finishing.
Once the building is sealed, NUDURA ceiling insulation is fitted to create a complete energy-efficient insulation envelope.
The completed NUDURA build offers exceptional energy-efficiency and comfort.
A wide range of external finishes can be used, including stone, brick or timber cladding, and acrylic render (as used in this example).
