The Business Case for Building Multifamily Buildings with Concrete Webinar (Free)
April 29, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Hosted by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association | Build with Strength
AIA-CES: 1 HSW LU (1 Hour) | 1 PDH | 0.1 CEU
This presentation provides insight on the economic benefits of building multifamily residential buildings with concrete using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). Combining the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with high performance rigid insulation, ICFs provide ideal solutions for developers of apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories and assisted living facilities. ICFs are remarkably cost competitive with wood frame construction on a first cost basis and offer operational cost savings through lower energy bills and reduced insurance costs. ICFs offer fire resistance and noise reduction qualities, important features with substantial cost saving. The presentation provides guidance on areas where ICFs can reduce construction schedules further improving the bottom line. Cost comparisons are presented to demonstrate how building with ICFs can increase your return on investment from a first cost perspective and long-term income strategy.
• Understand the benefits of concrete buildings built with Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) compared to wood frame for multifamily residential projects
• Demonstrate the economic benefits of building multifamily projects with ICFs
• Recognize the ways that ICF construction can save investors both time and money
• Understand the long-term value proposition of building with concrete and ICFs
