& Sustainability in Building

Build your next project with SIPs

Designing & building with custom SIP’s offers not only energy efficiency in the finished product but also speedy construction and less on-site waste. Building with structural insulated panels (SIPs) involves a different process than traditional ones.

SIP Home Build

Design

The first step is to design the building using SIPs. This includes determining the size and layout of your home, as well as determining the size and location of the SIPs.

Engineering

The next step is to have the design reviewed and engineered by a structural engineer to ensure that it is structurally sound and meets building codes.

Manufacturing:

After the design is approved, the SIPs are manufactured in a factory. The foam core is cut to size and sandwiched between two sheets of structural material, such as oriented strand board (OSB). The SIPs are then transported to the building site.

Foundation:

A foundation is poured or set for the building.

Assembly:

The SIPs are assembled on the foundation according to the design plans. The panels are cut to size and fit together to form the building’s walls, floors, and roof.

SIP Home Build

Finishing:

Once the SIPs are assembled, the building is ready for finishing work. This includes installing windows, doors, and other finishes, such as siding, drywall, and flooring.

Inspection:

After the finishing work is complete, the building is inspected to ensure that it meets building codes and is safe to occupy.

For Builders who desire efficiency and sustainability.

SIP commercial buildings offer a unique build experience that not only gives you or your client customization but also an efficient construction process and a smaller environmental impact than traditional builds.

The Benefits of SIPs

Building with structural insulated panels (SIPs) over traditional construction methods can offer several advantages. Some of the main reasons to consider using SIPs include:

5

Cost-effectiveness:

SIPs can be a cost-effective solution for building construction, as they are prefabricated and easily transported to the site, reducing labor costs.
5

Energy efficiency:

SIPs have a high insulation value and tight seals around windows and doors, which can help to reduce energy consumption and lower heating and cooling costs.

5

Speed of construction:

SIPs are prefabricated in a factory, which means they can be assembled quickly on-site. This can significantly reduce construction time and labor costs.
5

Environmentally friendly:

SIPs are prefabricated from polystyrene foam derived from post-consumer waste, reducing the use of fossil fuels and less on-site waste during construction.

5

Structural Integrity:

SIPs are made of structural materials such as oriented strand board (OSB), which make them strong and durable. They can withstand high winds and heavy snow loads, making them suitable for use in a variety of climates.

5

Indoor air quality:

Because SIPs create an airtight building envelope, it can improve indoor air quality and reduce the need for mechanical ventilation.

SIP Commercial Buildings

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) can be more cost-effective than stick-built construction in certain circumstances. SIPs may not be suitable for all types of construction; consult with our SIP professionals to determine if they benefit your next project.
