Strong Wall Builders offers training & education opportunities, for various aspects within the Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) industry. We have conducted lunch/ learn presentations for some of the largest Architects/ Engineers/ Builders across the country to help promote Green building practices and offer structurally superior building solutions for their customers. Architects that are designing high performance buildings that are not only resistant to natural disasters but also help save our customers operating expenses by reducing energy consumption.
We also offer various levels of training for General and sub-contractors integrated with ICF wall systems and various green building techniques like green "living" roofing systems, modified HVAC systems, rainfall collection tanks, solar panels, and Plumbing, Electrical and much more. The more knowledge the team has of this relatively new building system, will only keep costs more competitive and ensure that your structure will be built properly and within your budget. We believe that you don’t have to spend more to build a stronger more efficient home. It all comes down to education and exposure.
We understand the need to continually train new trades about the use of advanced framing systems in these difficult economic times and will always seek out solutions to reduce construction costs and eliminate unnecessary delays caused by manufacturing limitations or transportation constraints.
Let us demonstrate how we can produce a more sustainable home, at a comparable value to traditional framing, and you will never want to build any other way…
At Strong Wall Builders, we take on many projects from small to large. Whether it is designing a small safe-room to provide shelter for your family to a full size home, we can provide the same level of expertise and attention to detail to ensure an intelligently designed home that fits your families needs and your budget!
Our in house design team can create ICF friendly drawings that consider all of the ICF block specifications and engineering details to help eliminate job site confusion, reduce engineering requirements and help speed up the installation time overall. Through our experience building larger more complex structures, we have learned the pressure points often confronted. Our goal is to help minimize the back/ forth and reduce design time to get you started!

Although we specialize in advanced framing systems, we started out like most others framing homes the traditional way, using lumber. And as the years have progressed and demands for more plumb/ level walls that offer better wall finishes, we've trained our sub-contractors to integrate the use of metal studs as well to deliver a superior wall system for various applications.
Traditional wood framing is still the most cost effective approach for most interior / Exterior wall framing. And we would be happy to bid your next project as designed. However, out best asset is that we can do it all. So if your next home is designed with ICF, then we can easily bid the entire frame package to help streamline production and move your project forward faster. With less confusion.
Let us analyze your plans and help determine the best direction to take for your project. It is our #1 goal to help deliver the strongest built home for the best value.
