Commercial Multistory Construction with Premier SIP's

The developer for this four-story apartment complex used our 6" SIPs for all of the exterior walls on all four levels. And all of these SIP walls are load bearing and self-supporting.

  • SIPs reduce energy consumption
  • Easier to become Energy Star Compliant
  • Reduced construction time
  • Reduced job site waste and dumpster removal
  • End up with a durable, long-lasting building

The developer believes that SIPs durability is something else to consider. They are now realizing reduced call-backs for things like stucco cracking because their SIP walls are straighter and stronger than a typical stick framed wall.

The Future of Building! Although new to New Zealand, SIPs have been used in all types of construction for over thirty years. They have withstood 200 mph tornadoes and 7.2 earthquakes and have proved themselves to be much stronger than traditional wood framed structures!
