As our need to consider the environment both in regard to energy saving and sustainability of resources increases, the use of SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) are being more widely used by Local Authorities for the construction of community buildings throughout the country. These include hospitals, schools and community housing projects. They offer a viable alternative to more traditional building methods and are cost effective both to build and maintain. Because of the insulating properties of the panels, the buildings are much more energy efficient than conventional buildings and therefore markedly reduce the cost of heating them.
All of the panels are manufactured in Sip UK's modern factory to the clients specification using wood from sustainable sources. They can be erected in a very short time frame, ready for the follow on trades to complete the building process, reducing the overall build time considerably.
