A Story of SIPs and Construction Efficiency

June 26, 2013

There’s so much to consider when you design a building. So many opportunities to be efficient–or not.

Here’s what one customer shared about using Structural Insulated Panels: “Thermocore gives us the best thermal resistance values for the square footage and thicknesses we use, which in construction means other efficiencies–the wall thicknesses translate into foundation thicknesses and jam extensions for windows,” said Marty Serena, AIA, principal with Chicago-based Serena Sturm Architects. “The bigger and thicker you get, the more parts and pieces you need from the other trades to compensate. With Thermocore SIPS, we can build a better box quicker and more efficiently.”
