The Two On 1st Terraced House in Scottsdale, Ariz., was recently recognized with a national ICF Award, naming it one of the most innovative multifamily low-rise projects in North America.
The ICF award 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. Affordable, energy-efficient design was key.
The Two On 1st Terraced House was named 2nd Runner-Up in the MultiFamily Low-Rise division. The ICF award presentation, witnessed by hundreds of construction professionals, took place at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Jan. 19, 2022.
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 are truly astounding,” said Vanessa Salvia, editorial director of ICF Builder Magazine and one of the organizers and judges 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. 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.
