in Parry Sound. The following is our evaluation;
~ Building - 4000 square feet, 17'6" inside

Our 2nd project using Nudura.
1. Costs approximately 25% more to construct
of a standard pre-engineered building.
2. Building walls were completed and poured
crew of 3 within 7 days, ready to receive roof steel.
3. Heat load originally required a 125kbtu

4. Heat load with ICF was reduced to 77kbtu,
under-slab insulation and in-floor heating.
(This alone translates into a 50-60% savings of
5. ICF was used on this project to maintain low
operational costs for our tenants.
Based on the experience of these project, our
