Overwatch was sold to Textron
in 2006 at which time Mr. Huff
left active management to pursue other interests, especially in green technologies.
identified energy conserving, disaster-resistant building technology as a critically needed component in a future of increasing energy prices.
With that as a driving force, he
searched for practical technologies that could significantly improve the performance of both residential and commercial scale structures.
constructed two buildings using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), one using TF System's original ThermoForm vertical ICF, and another using a block ICF.
After careful analysis of thermal properties, labor productivity, flexibility of reinforcement, and the accuracy of the finished product, he
concluded that a substantial modification of the vertical system had the potential to build radically more efficient structures.
Subsequently, Mr. Huff
made an equity investment in TF System
, which holds the patents on vertical ICF, and collaborated with Gerald Spude to design and patent TransForm - enabling a new generation of practical super-insulated concrete structures.
Mr. Huff is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College with a BS in physics and the California Institute of Technology with a MS in physics.
He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and manages the Huff Family Foundation.
Mr. Brown joined Mr. Huff in TF Forming System making an equity investment in 2009, joining the company as CEO.
