About BuildBlock

Why BuildBlock?

“I was looking for a form that would solve the problems most installers encountered (while building complex structures) that would speed up the building process so an installer could be more efficient and build better quality structures in less time.”

-Mike Garrett, BuildBlock Founder & CEO

The BuildBlock Design

The creation of BuildBlock forms was focused on solving problems encountered when building ICFICF is an abbreviation for Insulating Concrete Forms or Insulated Concrete forms. Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are hollow foam blocks which are stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel rebar, and then filled with concrete. Insulating concrete forms combine one of the finest insulating materials, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), with one of the strongest structural building materials, steel... structures both simple and complex. BuildBlock introduced many patented features providing real practical benefits for the installer and owner. Some of those features included:

  • a numbered measuring system embossed on the forms face eliminating the need to measure a form before cutting;
  • horizontal cut lines every two inches over the height of the form to facilitate cutting in window bucks without needing a level;
  • High density hard attachment points marked with BB, built into the web flange for attaching bracing and heavy objects with pull strengths exceeding 450 lb. screw extraction pressures;
  • Web rebar fingers that would lock two steel rebar down positively in multiple locations allowing the proper flow of concreteConcrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregatebonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time. Most concretes used are lime-based concretes such as Portland cement concrete or concretes made with other hydraulic cements, such as calcium aluminate cements. However, asphalt concrete, which is frequently used for road surfaces, is also a type of concrete, where the cement material is bitumen, and polymer concretes are sometimes used where the cementing material... during the pouring process;
  • a strong web that had 8 inch spaced web cross bars so a block could be cut in half allowing each half block to maintain the same strength both top and bottom eliminating the need for half height specialty blocks.

  • Longer corners and 45 degree corner forms with full width connection fingers eliminate corners from pulling away from wall sections during the pour process as well.
  • Other forms often require additional accessories to obtain what the BuildBlock form does by itself.
  • The form connections are the full width of the foam thickness, unlike other forms that often must be glued to prevent them floating or coming apart, totally eliminated this need in most circumstances saving additional foam expense and labor.
  • BuildBlock Forms were designed on a 6 inch web spacing making them one of the strongest forms on the marketing and providing additional attachment points for bracing and finishes.
  • All BuildBlock forms are fully reversible eliminating the need for left and right corners and allowing much faster installation times.
  • One-inch vertical cut lines with a one inch repeating cut pattern eliminating foam waste in every cut (allowing waste of 1% or less) giving the designer and installer the most versatile value-added ICFICF is an abbreviation for Insulating Concrete Forms or Insulated Concrete forms.

Manufacturing

BuildBlock strives to manufacture the finest, most value oriented form in the marketplace, building one of the strongest distribution and manufacturing companies along the way. BuildBlock introduced the industry’s first on-line ordering system allowing customers to order products at their convenience, while also developing a unique master distributor program with protected territories. Each year BuildBlock increases its manufacturing locations. Currently there fifteen locations in the North America.

More locations provide shorter shipping distances and lower the delivered form costs to our distributors and customers. It further increased its distribution with foreign licensing of its products around the world and opened its first foreign facility in Egypt in 2012 making BuildBlock truly an international form company. BuildBlock has added western Canada and Mexico facilities since then and continues to expand. BuildBlock has additional licensees around the world including Cyprus and the Philippines.
