Rendering and/or Tiling Swimming pools.The specialist swimming pool company, who specialise in pools on holiday parks, that built this pool used ICF then tore the polystyrene off the inner face before they tiled.
This strongly suggests:
First: polystyrene covered in tiles is not strong enough to survive swimmers playing rough games;
Secondly: it is cheaper to form walls in ICF than traditional formwork even if you then pay men to tear off half the insulation you paid for.
