MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Shore Road Project in Old Greenwich, Conn., was recently recognized as one of the most innovative projects in the country.
The honor was presented as part of the ICF Builder Awards, an international competition designed to showcase the advantages of building with insulated concrete forms, commonly called ICFs. Built by Murphy Brothers Contracting, the Shore Road Project was named best in the Small Residential division. This is the third major builders award presented to this home, which was designed by area architect Rex Gedney. Lois Arena of Steven Winter Associates served as the project energy consultant.
The award presentation, witnessed by hundreds of construction professionals associated with the industry, took place at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas. Available in several brands, this building used the Fox Blocks ICF system. In presenting the award, judges cited the complexity of the design, the striking architecture and the challenges the construction team overcame to set a new standard for the entire ICF industry. The ICF Builder Awards are given annually to projects that demonstrate outstanding innovation, quality, and craftsmanship in ICF construction.
"We hope our project's award recognition will encourage others to think green when designing and building or renovating their homes or buildings, whatever the size, style or location," said Chris Murphy, president of Murphy Brothers Contracting.
"The variety and scale of projects being built with ICFs is truly astounding," said Clark Ricks, editor of ICF Builder magazine and organizer of the competition. "It's time these outstanding projects received industrywide recognition, and we feel privileged to take a leading role in that."
