Greenblock ICF walls are a perfect choice for this development
Stuart, FL (PRWEB) January 16, 2009
Greenblock® Worldwide Corporation announced that its Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Wall System has been selected for use in the new homes featured at The Enclave at Danforth Creek in Palm City, Fla. This private neighborhood will showcase 10 uniquely and individually designed classic courtyard homes each featuring Greenblock high-performance insulated concrete form exterior walls.
Each home at The Enclave will be built green with the highest standards of eco-friendly materials and energy smart appliances certified by the Florida Green Building Coalition. The developer, BeaconRock Development Group, and the builder, Homecrete Homes (http://www.homecretehomes.com, the nations largest builder of insulated concrete form homes), have worked together to develop this exclusive neighborhood committed to safe, healthy and sustainable living. And, each home has an option for guaranteed energy usage. In fact, the first home is guaranteed not to exceed $31 per month in HVAC energy system usage over a 24 month period.
These two-story, three and four bedroom homes will showcase a casual indoor-outdoor lifestyle with spacious, yet private, courtyards surrounded by natural Florida landscaping, and warm Caribbean colors. And unlike many local developments, The Enclave will be an intimate setting for just a few chosen families who want a real neighborhood and not a mass cookie cutter development. The Developer is quick to point out that this is not your average development and not for your average homebuyer. Homebuyers for this project will be very savvy with a vision of a perfect blend of healthy home, casual outdoor lifestyle and energy smart living within a quaint neighborhood.
"Greenblock ICF walls are a perfect choice for this development," says Steve Reiter, vice president of marketing for Greenblock. "Residents will not only enjoy the energy saving benefits of ICF construction but will also have the peace of mind of living in a home that will stand up to the hurricanes and tornadoes so prevalent in this state."
Florida-based Insulated Concrete Walls, Inc. will provide professional installation services for the Greenblock 4-inch core ICF walls and the 6-inch Lite-Deck® insulated concrete flooring systems which combine the strength of reinforced concrete with the insulating properties of polystyrene foam.
Greenblock ICFs are stacked to form the exterior walls of the structure, and then filled with concrete and reinforcing steel bars. The foam forms stay in place to provide exceptional insulating qualities. Lite-Deck® ICF flooring spans the entire flooring area and are tied into the ICF walls with concrete and steel creating a safe, strong, quiet and comfortable living environment. ICF construction can reduce energy bills by up to 70 percent, block exterior noise, and are extremely disaster resistant. The construction method is rapidly gaining popularity, growing at about 25% annually.
Construction of the first home, which will serve as the model center for the community, began mid-December and is scheduled to be complete and ready for occupancy by early March. Additional construction of the remaining nine homes will begin throughout the next six months.
