The Naked House is one of the most impressive features at the Build It Live shows. A section of a real house is built in the exhibition hall, so that the building materials can be observed as they would be in a real build project. This is a rare opportunity to see how a new build home could look at ‘first fix’ and also to see how various building products work together.
This year the Naked House presents various building products, including Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF), door & windows, heat recovery ventilation, exterior finishes, floor joists and roof trusses, and rainwater harvesting.
The insulation performance of Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) greatly reduces the running costs by up to 70% of any completed building, saving energy. The construction process reduces waste and significantly reduces the duration of time required to complete a project. See first hand in the Naked House, how this material can be used to best effect.
