Going Green With Nudura
Projects specifying NUDURA icf blocks provide much greater potential for saving valuable environmental resources, reducing energy consumption and C02 emissions, two major factors facing today’s commercial and residential buildings. NUDURA is proud to contribute to the LEED program for both Canada and the United States. To see a list of how the NUDURA ICF Block System can contribute to the LEED program refer to the related links on this page.
Today's buildings demand reliable, robust, high thermal performance building envelopes that provide maximum energy-efficiency, prevent heat loss and eliminate thermal bridging, all of which, NUDURA icf blocks can deliver. These performance criteria are key factors in minimizing energy running costs, while maximizing property value for building owners.
It is vital that the correct insulation systems and materials are specified at the design stage to ensure that thermal performance is maintained throughout the lifetime of the building. Additionally, high performance icf block building envelopes can reduce annual running costs by as much as 70% in conjunction with other high performance products included through the building design.
