Canada is reducing costs using structural insulated panels

from SIPA

SIPs are especially well-suited to any project relying on less-skilled labor whether custom built or affordable enclosures.

In new construction, high quality and high cost usually go hand in hand. But structural insulated panels (SIPs) reduce both construction and operating costs without compromising the finished product; in fact, this study shows SIPs shorten construction time and reduce labor costs by 40 to 48 percent. This is according to a feature article in the Housing Observer published by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (Oct. 13, 2017).

The volunteer labor forces of Habitat for Humanity, for example, often have little or no construction experience. Yet by using SIPs, they can erect high-quality walls within a few days. Similarly, SIPs are ideal in areas that lack skilled labor but have high housing demand. SIP homes are also more energy-efficient. Continuous planes of insulation and greater airtightness mean less moisture within walls, increased comfort, and energy savings of 10 to 15 percent.
