Building Green

green-tagSIP buildings are some of the most energy efficient buildings ever developed.  Audits continue to prove that money is saved year after year in these super-insulated, airtight structures.

The construction and operation of buildings has a significant impact on the environment. Building accounts for 39% of total U.S. energy consumption and 38% of carbon dioxide emissions. Green buildings use less energy, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and play an important role in combating global climate change. Buildings also use a tremendous amount of natural resources to construct and operate. Constructing green buildings that use these resources more efficiently, while minimizing pollution that can harm renewable natural resources, is crucial to a sustainable future. Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are one of the most airtight and well insulated building systems available, making them an inherently green product. An airtight SIP building will use less energy to heat and cool, allow for better control over indoor environmental conditions, and reduce construction waste.  

Here are some of the “Green” benefits you’ll experience in your new SIP building.

  • The Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) core allows for virtually no drafts or sound transmission.
  • Molds, mildews, and dust are reduced.
  • SIP enclosed buildings are more fire resistant than stick frame buildings because there are no air cavities in the walls to create the ‘chimney effect’.
  • Air temperature and quality are easily controlled, which drastically reduces energy consumption and thus heating and cooling costs. Often energy bills can be reduced by 40% or more by switching to SIP enclosures.
  • Using SIPs greatly reduces CO2 emissions over the course of the home’s lifetime.
  • SIPs also reduce construction waste.  They can be delivered to the site pre-cut to exact dimensions and each panel contains the insulation, structure, and moisture barrier of the wall system.
  • EPS – the insulation – is recyclable. 
  • Our SIPs utilize Oriented Strand Board (OSB) as the sheathing and facing material that sandwiches the insulation. OSB reduces wood use by as much as 35% and reduces pressure on mature forests by allowing the use of smaller farm-grown trees that can be regenerated in 5-10 years.
  • EPS core panels do not contain any formaldehyde, CFCs or other harmful or dangerous gases.

Made with Environmentally Safe Materials

OSB

Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

SIPs are made with environmentally safe materials including oriented strand board (OSB), foam insulation and sealants. OSB skins are made using smaller, faster growing tree species such as aspen and southern yellow pine, a renewable resource. Foam CoreThe foam core insulation has extremely low vapor permeability, and no physical degradation over time. The SIP system is 15 times more airtight than typical wood-frame construction resulting in much less energy loss. That puts SIP construction on better terms with the environment throughout its total life cycle, making it a key component of sustainable building practices and qualifying SIPs for green building programs. Other environmental benefits include, greatly reduced job site waste.
