This first time SIP construction designer and build team switched from other building envelope methods for energy efficiency and cost/value advantages. The overall benefit of using Premier SIPS on this project was how 'panels' easily steered the design direction and achieved exceptional energy efficiency with operational savings for years to come.
The design team said at the end of the project, "We worked very closely with our structural engineer. Premier SIPS are not the traditional nail it or screw it together type of construction. Engineers were able to complement the design with some significant structural/architectural steel frames. The steel structural frames contrast the simplicity of the panel system. It creates an interesting relationship of parts. The results were rewarding. We learned that SIPS are best used as a system to drive the entire project. We look forward to using them again."
Premier SIPS offered advantages in terms of energy efficiency, providing a very tight envelope, decreasing the heating and cooling loads on the project, and enabled the project to make a huge step forward in terms of environmental responsibility without compromise to design or project budget. An additional advantage was there were no concern for plumbers or electricians.
Other Project Features:
- Forced air heating and cooling.
- Roofing: The roofing material was a non absorbing white EPDM membrane which illiminates the need for shingles or metal.The low slope of the SIPS system allowed us to treat the entire roof with EPDM. The roof is not visible. No need for architectural roofing materials just the essential. U and R values are per 2019 National Energy Code.
- LED lighting through out.
- A solar PV array is currently under consideration.
- The landscape design is a 'no' water design.
