OUR HISTORY

We began operations building custom ICF homes from the ground up in 1997. Our president, Douglas Herrick, is a State Certified Building Contractor with over 20 years of experience in the construction industry.

 

Doug developed his philosophy for hard work, professionalism, and attention to detail while serving as an  Aviator with the United States Navy. After his tour was up, Doug apprenticed with a commercial builder, and after obtaining his builder's license, started his own construction business. He holds an Architecture degree from the University of Colorado and sits on the board of directors of the Northwest Florida Home Builders Association. He is also a member in good standing of the ICFA (Insulating Concrete Form Association) and the ACI (American Concrete Institute).

 

Today, Coastal ICF specializes in building ICF walls that include the entire envelope or “shell” (foundation, ICF walls, and framing). Our approach streamlines the construction process by using a single professional subcontractor to complete the three critical structural phases of construction and thus provides more effective coordination between owners, architects, engineers, builders, subcontractors, and construction officials .
