Regarding Insulated Concrete Forms for a finished basement, what is the preferred type of wiring if the insulation is 2-1/4" thick w/ furring strips and drywall? What is the most cost effective? My gut tells me steel boxes w/ EMT set in the forms at they are being built and add an extension ring to each box, ending with a plaster ring. Thoughts??

Foam is on the outside of the concrete? If so use a hot knife and romex after the concrete is poured. Throw in some PVC sleeves for any exterior penetrations and your all set until rough. Hot knife blade was a U shape and we put the foam back into place after we shaved it to fit the wire.
