Hurricane Strong is a new, annual national hurricane resilience initiative to increase safety and reduce economic losses through collaboration with the most recognized public and private organizations in the disaster safety movement.
The Hurricane Strong Home project is a unique rebuilding demonstration taking place in Breezy Point, New York, for a deserving lifelong resident, Diane Hellriegel, whose home (along with many others in this tight knit coastal community) was destroyed by the high winds and storm surge of Superstorm Sandy.
Diane’s new home will demonstrate best practice, code-compliant coastal construction using a variety of strong, innovative, resilient and super energy-efficient materials, including walls constructed with Logix Insulated Concrete Forms.

The ICF Summit will again be featured at the 2017 World of Concrete Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 17 to 20. The annual ICF Summit is presented by two ICF industry associations — the Insulating Concrete Forms Manufacturers Association (ICFMA), formerly the Council of ICF Industries (CICFI), of which Logix ICF is a Primary and Founding Member, and the ICF Builder Group.
The ICF Summit is a series of “hot topic” interactive seminars, each featuring presentations by some of the most ICF-experienced installers and construction professionals in North America. It’s a great forum for ICF rookies and veterans alike to learn more about ICFs from those who have “been there and done that”.
This year, the 2017 ICF Summit at WOC is offering three new presentations January 17 to 19: ‘Introduction to ICFs’, ‘The Complete ICF Solution for Disaster Resilience’, and ‘Building High Performance Mid-Rise Buildings with ICFs’
Click here to register for any or all of these ICF Summit presentations. Be sure to select “Association & Industry Training” on the Options page to view the course offerings. You can register for a single 90-minute presentation of your choosing for just $90, or you can purchase the 2-Day Basic Package OR the 2-Day Advanced Package for only $160 and save $20!

“The marketplace is littered with misconceptions about concrete and what it means for an investors’ bottom line,” says Jack Holland, the Council’s inaugural co-chairman.
