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.
