The Newmarket Apartments in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada was recently recognized as one of the most innovative MultiFamily projects in North America. The honor was presented as part of the ICF Builder Awards, an international competition designed to showcase the advantages of building with Insulated Concrete Forms, commonly called ICFs.
The Newmarket Apartments was named 1st Runner-Up in the MultiFamily division. The presentation, witnessed by three hundred construction professionals associated with the industry, took place at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada January 24th 2018.
The ICF Builder Awards are given annually to projects that demonstrate outstanding innovation, quality, and craftsmanship in ICF construction. "The variety and scale of projects being built with ICFs is truly astounding," said Clark Ricks, executive director of ICF Builder Group and organizer of the competition. "It's time these outstanding projects received recognition, and we feel privileged to take a leading role in that. These projects truly represent the best of the best."
This building used the Fox Blocks brand ICF system, and was submitted by Airlite Plastics. In presenting the award, judges cited the complexity of the design, the striking architecture, and the challenges the construction team overcame to set a new standard for the entire ICF industry.
