BuildBlock Building Systems was formed in 2004 by founder and CEO Mike Garrett. Mike had been a top distributor for two other major ICF companies and spent more than 12 years in ICF construction and distribution and another 15 years in residential and small commercial construction. He pioneered the use of ICFs in Oklahoma.
BuildBlock ICF forms were created to overcome many of the problems and costs encountered with other ICF forms. Extensive experience building custom homes and small commercial structures over the past 15 years combined with his 12 year involvement in ICF distribution and construction helped lay a solid foundation to create one of the most install friendly ICF on the market today.
The creation of BuildBlock forms was focused on solving problems encountered when building ICF structures both simple and complex. BuildBlock introduced many patented features providing real practical benefits for the installer and owner. Some of those features included:
BuildBlock strives to manufacture the finest, most value oriented form in the marketplace, building one of the strongest distribution and manufacturing companies along the way. BuildBlock introduced the industry’s first on-line ordering system allowing customers to order products at their convenience, while also developing a unique master distributor program with protected territories. Each year BuildBlock increases its manufacturing locations. Currently there fourteen locations in the North America.
More locations provide shorter shipping distances and lower the delivered form costs to our distributors and customers. It further increased its distribution with foreign licensing of its products around the world and opened its first foreign facility in Egypt in 2012 making BuildBlock truly an international form company. BuildBlock has added western Canada and Mexico facilities since then and continues to expand. BuildBlock has additional licensees around the world including Cyprus and the Philippines.
BuildBlock has continued to evolve its product line including versatile and very affordable BuildDeck floor and roofing system, BuildLock Knockdown 4-12+ inch products, and GlobalBlock the first fully reversible all foam ICF. Additional ICF accessories such as BuildBrace an ICF bracing and alignment system, BuildCrete Stucco & Plaster finishes, ThermalSert Insulation Inserts, and BuildClip an optional reinforcing clip strengthening cut blocks as they’re integrated into a flooring systems are added to solve needs in the market today.
The future is very bright for BuildBlock distributors and customers. In the years ahead BuildBlock is the company to watch for innovation and growth in this exciting industry that is changing how buildings are built for today for the future. Build your future today. “Build It Once Build It For Life”
