Construction of Regents Park

The building is ICF construction with a metal roof (insulated concrete forms). You won’t be bogged down with any maintenance yourself – the association takes care of everything including pest control.

Insulated concrete form construction is considered a high performance residential construction material. ICF is made by pouring concrete, reinforced with metal, between two layers of insulating foam. ICF is very energy efficient and very quiet, making it an ideal material to use in a condo. Benefits include strength, energy efficiency, sound absorption, fire protection, and air quality.
