Structural Insulated Panel Systems

The origins of SIPS go back to 1935, with some of the earliest examples found in the Usonian houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, but it was Alden B. Dow  (an architectural student of Frank Lloyd Wright), who in 1950 created the first structural panel with an insulated core. Since then SIPS have been used extensively in the USA and Canada and are now growing in popularity in the UK.

Constructed by sandwiching a core of insulation between two layers of OSB (Oriented Strand Board), panels are produced in various thickness and sizes to suit the design and thermal insulation requirements of a project.

In providing the supporting structure, on completion of the erected frame all voids and joins are foam filled, ensuring exceptional air tightness and insulation values..

SIP panels enable living space in the roof to be facilitated easily, maximising volume SIPS provide a fast and environmentally friendly construction method that employs cradle to grave technology, by helping to reduce CO2 emissions in manufacture and as a habitable building.

TimberFrame

Historically one of the oldest construction methods, timber frame is the most popular self – build choice worldwide and is used extensively in all other construction sectors, including private and social housing, education, nursing homes and commercial development etc.

Timber Frame-SMALL

Timber frame provides the core structural shell of a building, whilst enabling any external fašade of brick, render or timber cladding etc., to finish the aesthetics as required. High insulation values and excellent air tightness are achieved expediently, maximising the internal area. Timber exemplifies a life cycle approach to construction and employs many of the sustainable benefits desirable with today’s climate change issues.
