SIPs - The future of building

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) offer a modern, cost-effective, environmental and energy efficient solution to building construction. A SIPs building is constructed by assembling pre-manufactured panels which are heavily insulated, eliminating the need for additional insulation. The panels are very strong, so can be used for floors and roofs as well as external and internal walls, without the requirement for a traditional wood frame.

In today's world we are all aware of the ever-increasing cost of heating, and we have a growing sensitivity towards the environmental impact of our activities. The high level of insulation in SIPs construction offers a solution to these concerns, both during the build and throughout the lifetime of a building.

Whether you are planning a new home or workplace, or adding an extension, you need your new building to be both comfortable and efficient to heat. The high degree of insulation in SIPs leads to low heating costs and a high degree of comfort. The panel construction method allows you to work with your architect to make the best use of available space, tailoring your building to the way you live and keeping costs under control. And of course you want to move in as soon as possible; with SIPs construction your building will take shape quickly and our experienced staff will work closely with your architect, engineer and on-site staff to make the project run as smoothly as possible.

Sips Industries specialises in all aspects of SIPs building, from design through manufacture of the panels to on-site construction.

For Architects

SIPS construction allows you to maximise the use of space, free from many of the constraints imposed by other construction techniques. SIPs can be combined with many materials such as brick, steel, glass, wood, allowing your design to be led by aesthetic and function, rather than restricted by the construction method.

For Engineers

Our experienced staff are available to assist you will all aspects of your project. We only need to be involved as much as you need us to be. You can use us just as a source of information and advice, but more typically you will use our full CAD service to prepare detailed drawings and calculations.

For Builders and Project Managers

Construction based on pre-manufactured panels speeds construction immensely. Our experienced project managers and construction teams will work with you and typically the main structure of a building can be erected in just a few days. Panels are cut to exact dimensions in our factory before delivery to site, reducing on-site labour and minimising waste.
