A simpler, stronger and more energy efficient way to build your home
Camorino Constructions are a West Australian home building company specialising in insulated concrete forms (ICF) construction. As a small volume builder, we are dedicated to building quality homes of the highest standard.
An ICF home built by Camorino provides many of the essential elements that today’s homeowner is looking for – style, excellent indoor environmental quality (IEQ), energy efficiency and disaster resistance.
We build using Formcraft ICF systems that are precision manufactured, double insulated and steel reinforced concrete walls. The result is a strong, superior wall assembly that outperforms double brick and timber frame construction on all counts.
Our projects deliver measurable results every time. Specifically, you can expect your ICF home to be 50% more energy efficient, 2 times stronger, and 50% quieter than your standard double brick home.
ICF homes are built to last and are the perfect choice for the discerning homeowner looking to build a perfectly engineered designer home.

It’s a stronger, faster built & more energy efficient home.
It’s relaxing in the quiet comfort of your modern home knowing that you have purchased proven quality and a way of living. Formcraft’s Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) is being rapidly adopted around Australia for it’s superior performance and can make your home up to 40% more energy efficient and resilient than traditional building systems.
This type of wall form delivers advanced strength, thermal and acoustic properties that far exceeds any other building system. It is used in homes, high rise buildings, commercial, industrial and even some military applications.
In addition, a Camorino built ICF home includes internal brick walls and double glazed windows, giving you extra strength and comfort.
Formcraft ICF has been designed to ensure ease of use and structural integrity for every building need.
The reinforced steel and concrete core inside ICF walls, provide extreme strength
and durability all sandwiched between highly insulated panels of EPS foam. Anywhere from 85% to 90% of heating and cooling costs are eliminated, when compared to other uninsulated building systems. So there’s no more need to run your air conditioner in summer or heater in winter!
The insulated concrete walls are protected not just from the heat and cold, but also noise, pollution and mother nature itself. Providing the ultimate in indoor comfort, you will improve your home’s performance by eliminating moisture intrusion, managing airflow and ensuring accurate climate control. ICF homes don’t suffer from drafts and cold spots, which often occur in conventional construction.
ICF homes have an STC rating of 54, which means any external noise cannot be heard. No matter where you live you won’t have to worry about noisy neighbours, busy streets, trains, planes and other outside disturbances ever again!
Strength against the elements
The core of ICF walls is reinforced concrete. This provides extremely strong walls
to support almost any concept or design. It is proven to withstand the forces of nature such as cyclones, fire, impacts from debris and any other natural disasters life may throw at your home.
Unlimited external finishings
ICF walls provide you with a wide range of architectural finishings to ensure you achieve the stylish look you desire. Externally, they are generally finished with acrylic texture coat, but external cladding such as timber or stone, feature tiles and brickwork can also be used.
Lifetime of savings
The benefits stack up! Building with insulated concrete forms is the proven way to build a more energy efficient home, providing far greater value than traditional double brick walls or insulated timber frame walls. When it comes to construction costs, it’s comparable to double brick construction, but the savings achieved in a lifetime through energy efficiency are far superior.
