NYC's FIrst Multifamily ICF Building

Tuesday, Jul 31, 2007

Take the tour and learn about a new way to build green housing. Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)—an energy-efficient construction material recently introduced in New York City--look like picnic coolers, stack like LEGO blocks and are so insulating that they can save homeowners as much as 80 percent in energy bills. Construction and real estate professionals can learn about the benefits of ICFs and visit the first ICF multifamily complex built in New York City at an open house on July 31, co-hosted by the New York City Concrete Promotional Council (NYCCPC) and Habitat for Humanity - New York City, which is developing the project. The open house will include tours of Habitat-NYC’s Halsey Street homes, a nine-unit affordable condo complex constructed of ICFs filled with concrete. NYCCPC will give hands-on demonstrations of ICFs and the ICF construction process and benefits. Lunch will be provided.

Sponsors:Habitat for Humanity - New York City and the NYC Concrete Promotional Council

Location: Halsey Street and Marcus Garvey Avenue Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn (Southeast corner)
