Building residential or commercial buildings to high levels of energy efficiency can pay off in reduced enegry costs for the 50 year life of the building! That's smart construction.

SIPs, structural insulated panels, are one of today's high performance building methods that can save construction costs, save energy costs over the lifetime of the building, and provide greater comfort for residents and workers at the same time.

Michael Morley is the communications expert about SIP design and construction. His book has become a standard in the high performance building industry: "Building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS): Strength and Energy Efficiency Through Structural Panel Construction" provides both the owner/builder and the construction team with the knowledge needed to translate business practices and construction methods into modern energy efficiency methods that meet Energy Star standards.

Sips are large panels that can be used for wall sections, roofs, and floors to make constuction much faster than stick built frame buildings -- for both residential and commercial buildings.

Yes, SIPs are green.

Due to the high energy efficiency, the materials used, and the minimal waste at the job site, SIPs provide a pathway to a net-zero-energy home or commercial building.

SIP construction training is readily available, the building technique is a proven, insurable building method, and SIPs are being approved by more and more green and energy efficient building incentive programs that can reduce cost, and improve regulatory compliance significantly.

Ths book, Building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS), is the best overview with technical information included that will help owners and builders weigh the costs and advantages, and fit this new method of construction into green building strategies.

  • How to choose the right panels for the job
  • How to equip yourself with the tools needed to work with SIP panels
