Sustainable Construction

LEATHWAITE ® provide specialist sustainable construction services for client projects. We also act as Main Contractor for our own new home projects.

Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF)

LEATHWAITE ‘s background is in ICF construction. We have un-rivalled expertise in the use of ICF with our team who have worked on a wide range of pioneering building projects using ICF over the last 18 years. Our experience means that LEATHWAITE ® :-

  • Understand the benefits that ICF can bring to a project.
  • Can contribute at the design stage of a project so that the flexibility and potential of ICF is fully exploited.
  • Understand the interaction of the ICF with all other elements of the build.
  • Ensure that each ICF build is completed successfully, safely, efficiently and on-time.

Basements and Swimming Pools

With the combination of ICF and Crystalline Concrete Waterproof solutions we can provide Basement solutions either as part of a new build or as an extension to an existing dwelling.
