Our Superior Quality Insulated Perimeter Walls help preserve Heat / Cold energy similar to a Thermos®
DeVicci ICF Blocks where Thermal Bridge is absent, demand far less energy to control the inner Home climate.
Our blocks were designed & developed in the harsh climate of Canada following these essential courses.
Academic Studies, Certifications, Experience and R&D:
Aviation Maintenance; Course studies & practical applications performed on site at “École Nationale d’Aérotechnique” Collège Montpetit campus facilities, Visit them here: Topics of Aircraft envelope analysis. Ground to Air / Air to Ground Thermal Shock.
Further studies of Condensation, Micro Infiltration detection & Infrared Inspection surveys were to be performed by using various FLIR tools.
RBQ Licensed Contractor: Former Licensed contractor in Quebec, Canada as a specialized ICF Builder for entire building structure & foundations. Visit the RBQ here . Presently we outsource our construction projects to qualified 3rd party contractors.
Novoclimate 2 Accreditation: This agency governs Energy Efficiency + HVAC for controlled temperature & humidity levels, mold prevention and more, they regulate home builders. They require builders to follow stringent regulations in order to procure optimal health conditions for the occupants. Visit them here
Certified IR Thermographer: Owner of a FLIR T440Bx infrared camera with Meterlink which is specifically designed for building diagnostics and other Infrared tools. We passed the Infrared Training Center course and obtained a “Level I” ITC Certification. More about FLIR here . T440Bx Spec sheets. Our use of the Infrared technology is for the detection of air Infiltration / exfiltration, water infiltrations, pipe leaks, Electrical anomalies, Thermal Bridges and various other Building Diagnostics.

Additional building expertise knowledge and data collection was performed on location in the Carribean & European climates.
Here are some “Real Life” examples of Thermal Heat loss via Thermal Bridge & the true value of ICFs
ICF built homes keep the same R-Value over time. From day 1 to 100 years later energy efficiency will remain stable. The ICF insulation doesn’t condesate nor accumulate water droplets of humidity. Sealed walls make water & air infiltration impossible.
