Enchanted Hills Lighthouse Camp (For the Blind)
End Use: This project was for a Camp that built 25 Buildings ranging from 960 SF to 6,700 SF
Why SIPs: Owner and Architect wanted a highly efficient and energy efficient SIP Roof for all buildings that helped each structure easily meet Title 24 net zero energy requirements.
Benefits of SIPs: Saved tremendous amount of Labor as the installer stitched the roof panels together on the ground in prep and was able to lift large portions of the roof into place. Enabling fast dry in for finish work, and ultimately faster occupancy.
Innovative Design Elements: The roof on all the buildings are a major design feature thus the SIP Panels highlighted each structure.
- Energy Star
- National Green Building Standards
- Local Green Building programs
HERS Index: Not required. Meets Title 24 Code Compliance for Net Zero
Blower Door Rest: Not required. Meets Title 24 Code Compliance for Net Zero
Energy Intensity: Not enough data yet
HVAC: Micro Units
Solar Panels: Some of the buildings have solar panels installed already, all will have them in near future for positive energy consumption.
"This camp was burned out in the CA wildfires in Napa. By utilizing SIPs on the roof the rebuilt camp was able to achieve the stringent fire codes in the area, gain significant energy efficiency over burned down buildings, and enabled the camp to resume operations much faster than anticipated because of the speed of construction SIPs delivered. . ."
