SIPs ConstructionPosted by:
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The SIPs panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB).
SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. This Offsite fabrication means that your weatherproof SIPs building shell can be complete just a few days after the ground works are ready to receive them.
SIPs are fabricated using timber from sustainable sources. SIPs use less timber than timber frame and are one of the most economical and eco friendly forms of construction.
The high strength to weight ratio of SIP Panels allows large sections of your building to be fitted at once, speeding up the time required on site for erection. The Offsite fabrication reduces waste and also helps reduce embodied and transport energy.
