Your architect and home builder will give you the design and construction you want.
But to build it right, youíll need a structural engineer.
An Insulating Concrete Form home has special structural design requirements. It needs a better foundation to support the concrete loads.
Open spaces, wide arches and big windows need special attention. A professional engineer will plan the details, design the foundation, floors, and roof, and observe critical points of the construction to ensure they meet building code requirements.

But with Insulating Concrete Forms, the right architect, contractor and structural engineer, you can have a tornado resistant home that will weather the storms. The safety of your family will be increased and the damage to the home will be comparatively minimal.
