Suntuity Home’s first NetZero structure starts with a durable, 8-inch foundation base and strong, sound walls. ICF (Insulating Concrete Forms) construct walls that are energy efficient, disaster resilient, low-waste, environmentally friendly, and incredibly easy to install.
Complemented by Helix® Micro Rebar™ poured directly into the concrete cylinder to strengthen wall reinforcement, this method reduces the amount of traditional rebar needed and helps achieve a 9,000 psi compressibility rating in the foundation. In some cases, the use of Micro Rebar™ completely eliminates the need to use traditional rebar. A product that has been utilized in slabs, walls, footings and foundations over the last 20 years, it has more than proven to increase resiliency, ductility, and strength of the concrete.
