INSTANT ECO HOMES
We build residential and commerical structures
using insulating concrete forms.
- Speed of construction
- Super low U-Values
- Cost Savings
- No weather delays
INSULATED CONCRETE FORMWORK (ICF)
Panels made of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Ties made of High Density Polyethylene create a Concrete Form that accommodates Reinforcing Steel if required.
Filling the cavity with concrete creates solid, reinforced concrete walls, low maintenance, and outstanding durability. The EPS stays in place to provide superior, continuous insulation, space to run small utilities and to serve as backing for finishes.
The high insulation values, low air infiltration, and high thermal mass can achieve significant energy savings for building owners, operators, and tenants over the building's longer lifetime.
CONCRETE BY BARROW MIX
Concrete and Concrete Pumping service supplied by Barrow Mix Concrete
Awkward locations, multi-level properties, Conservatories, patios, driveways, paths, footings, bases, floors, garages, cellars - you name it - we can pump it!
Instant Homes products are designed in Altrincham,
Cheshire by award winning Architect Group Tsiantar Architects.
Tsiantar Architects Limited, a RIBA Chartered Practice based in Altrincham, Cheshire, was formed by George Tsiantar (RIBA) in 1986 to provide a comprehensive design service to the residential and commercial sector.
ADVANTAGES OF OUR BUILDING SYSTEM
Our systems allows architects & developers to embrace modern and traditional styles of buildings without restriction to create beautiful, artistic and functional structures.
ICF provides greater energy solutions and can reduce thermal transfer to as low as 1.9 BTU/ft²/hr (5.99 w/m²k) even at temperatures as low as -23 deg C. The superior Performance Value of TIMS comes from the stable thermal mass that the concrete provides.
R-Value of 24, Thermal mass properties of up to R-50
Speed of build is one of our unique selling points.
It is far faster to build with our systems than traditional brick and block, and even faster than timber frame structures when you factor in the 6-8 week lead time required for timber frames, our structure could be ordered and completed within this time. The unique design of the modular system allows panels to be assembled off site and folded for transport. A 46sqm unit would typically take 3 days to complete the super structure, including the concrete pour subject to finished ground-works.

SUPER LOW U-VALUES
ONGOING ENERGY COST SAVINGS
INSTANT HOMES SHELLS
Our system is a next generation insulating concrete system, combining modular and off-site construction techniques offering you a sustainable construction solution which is designed to be installed significantly faster than traditional building routes and at a lower labour cost.
Eliminates thermal bridges
Our systems consist of two panels of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam that are 67mm in thickness and connected together with our patented web system that is made of 100% recycled material. Our systems are stacked, steel reinforced and filled with concrete, which completes the building envelope of your structure in one building step.
High thermal resistance
A wall made from our system makes it possible to attain thermal resistance (U) values as low as 0.16 w/m²K.
Our EPS insulation acts as an Air Barrier, as proven by accredited ASTM testing. The patented DURALOCK Technology® ensure our blocks are mechanically linked together, thus preventing gaps which could allow air to flow through the assembly.
