Building With Confidence: Power of Predictability


What if you could eliminate a huge percentage of uncertainty that troubles your construction projects?  What if every component of your framing and insulation package arrived precisely when needed, and performs exactly as expected?  Talk about a dream project, right?  Predictability.  It’s not just a luxury - it’s a necessity in the building process.  So, how can you ensure that your construction project stays on track from start to finish?

With Premier Structural Insulated Panels, SIPS, you can rest assured that your building envelope system will be delivered precisely when needed.  This is critical to your project's success bececause the building envelope is more than just the roof and walls, it’s the structural foundation that anchors every aspect of your construction project.  We all know that predictability is vital in construction, but how do SIPs pave the way for a smoother, more efficient building process? Keep reading… 


The Cost of Uncertainty

Imagine this scenario: you're managing a construction project, relying on various building products to be delivered on time for seamless progress.  Yet,  one crucial component encounters unexpected delays, throwing off your entire schedule. Electricians, plumbers, and other trades are left in limbo, costing you valuable time and money.  This unpredictability not only disrupts your workflow but also tarnishes your reputation as a reliable contractor.  And it’s not just about workflow predictability, but also ensuring the quality of the product delivered.


Predictability is Key

Here’s where predictable products and their lead times come into play. When you can rely on consistent delivery schedules for your building materials, you can plan with confidence.  This predictability allows you to coordinate trades effectively, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.  And ultimately, having a product that performs as it’s supposed to is a must for both efficiency and credibility.

So, how do Premier SIPS contribute to this predictability? Unlike traditional stick-framed building materials with unpredictable production schedules (and quality), SIPS are manufactured off-site in a controlled environment. 

SIP Design and Fabrication Process  

The construction of a SIP building begins with meticulous planning, ensuring every panel is precision-engineered to exact specifications. These panels, with their pre-insulated design, are factory-fabricated, incorporating structural components, insulation, and electrical chases. Engineered for uniformity and reliability, SIPs ensure accurate construction, enhancing the overall quality of the end product such as straight and plumb walls.  View our ordering and production process here.

The builder, engineer, building owner, and other involved parties review the shop drawings.  Once the shop drawings are finalized, the SIPs are fabricated exactly per design and shipped to the jobsite for installation.  For more information on this process, watch the half-hour educational videos on SIP Order Process and SIP Layout Drawings.

SIP Delivery Process

The efficiency of the SIP design and fabrication process allows for accurate scheduling to the jobsite.  This supports just-in-time delivery of the panels, reducing site storage requirements while ensuring smooth progress.  The pre-cut panels are delivered like a kit, labeled with assembly instructions and charts.

SIP Installation Process

Large panels for easier installation

SIP homes and commercial spaces go up much faster than traditionally framed buildings.  A properly trained SIP installation crew can cut framing time by 55% compared to conventional wood framing, according to a third-party study conducted by R.S. Means.  Panels are manufactured as big as 8-foot by 24-foot, ensuring wall and roof sections can be put up quickly, reducing dry-in time.  SIPs are ready to install when they arrive at the jobsite, eliminating the time needed to perform the individual jobsite operations of framing, insulating, and sheathing stick-framed walls.  


SIPs - A Superior Building Product

Who doesn’t want a product that performs as it’s supposed to?

Straight Surfaces: Straight, engineered walls, floors and ceilings make everyone's jobs easier when it comes to finish work. SIPs are made with engineered wood products for perfectly flat, straight surfaces, making it extra easy to plumb corners. Contractors can hang cabinetry, install millwork anywhere, with structural grade engineered sheathing on the interior and exterior, further enabling predictability with scheduling and installation estimates.

Superior Sound & Temperature Control:  Beyond efficiency and quality, Premier SIPS prioritizes the well-being of building occupants by offering superior temperature and sound control. With consistent temperatures from floor to floor and room to room, Premier SIPS eliminates drafts and temperature imbalances like the chimney effect, ensuring uniform airflow throughout the building. At the same time, the panels provide excellent sound insulation, creating quiet and peaceful indoor environments. This combination of thermal and acoustic performance not only enhances comfort but also contributes to a healthier and more productive indoor environment, fostering overall well-being and tranquility.
