In addition to providing a wide range of engineering services, Design & Construction has leaded new construction technologies at the Greek structural market. As a representative of Quad Lock Ltd., d&c imports the patented Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF).
Design & Construction is dedicated to improving our environment & well-being by offering sustainable and resilient building envelopes. Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) for walls, floors and roofs create very energy-efficient, comfortable, and safe buildings at a lower total cost of ownership.
Quad-Lock is a panel type ICF wall system consisting of panels, ties, metal track and metal brackets. Quad-Lock Panels are made with high density, fire retardant expanded polystyrene (EPS) which uses no formaldehyde, HFCs or CFCs. Seven panel types and eight types of plastic ties allow virtually limitless design options using standard components.
Plastic ties ingeniously connect the panels and support the reinforcing steel, while also providing a means to anchor drywall, siding and temporary bracing. Metal track is used to start and finish the walls and metal brackets create the strongest corners in the industry eliminating additional outside bracing at corners and angles.
Applications include load bearing walls, shear walls, fire resistant walls, basement walls, retaining walls, and foundation walls incorporated in residential, commercial, and institutional construction.
