Elmwood Multifamily, 2018 Building Excellence Awards runner-up

Multifamily category

Built by Elmwood Properties, the Elmwood Multifamily Apartments and Student Housing in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is one of the fine projects submitted for consideration in the SIPA 2018 Building Excellence Awards.

The project has 11,066 square feet of conditioned space and was designed by Tom Osoki Design Services of St. Paul, Minnesota, using SIP panels manufactured by SIPA member Energy Panel Structures (EPS). Elmwood reports that the SIPs made construction faster, easier, at a lower cost and provided a better quality structure compared to traditional building methods. The system worked very well, and the builder was able to use their own labor force even though they were new to building with SIP panels. Also, the engineered plans and structural integrity helped greatly with receiving city approval.

A SIP wall thickness of 5-1/2" resulted in an R-26 insulation protection from the Minnesota cold temperatures as supported by the blower door test results, 2.75 ACH50. Using low-VOC paints and finishes, LED energy-efficent lighting and U-factor .27 windows by Andersen will help Elmwood Multifamily residence stay comfortable with affordable energy bills.
