Default ICF basement walls

My upcoming build is a daylight basement, and i have been dreading the form plywood. I am not a spring chicken and my back does not like that stuff much.
Now I am kicking around ICF as an alternative. You get instant R23, and a piece of form that weighs 7 pounds each.
I am thinking I can dig and prep, put in edge forms and bar, and then hire a finish crew to pour the slab with thickened edges for footing bearing.
Then I could stack the ICF myself and get a crew back on pour day.
