To Achieve Energy Efficiency while increasing the overall speed of a construction schedule, you really need to be using the Insulspan Structural Insulating Panel (SIP) System for constructing walls in commercial building projects
The same benefits that make the Insulspan SIP system an attractive option for residential construction make it a good solution for commercial projects. For example, while speed of construction can be a determining factor even in small residential projects, when it comes to large commercial buildings, the time savings are that much more enhanced.
Probably the most significant reason for builders of commercial projects to choose SIPs though is their recognized benefit as energy efficient building components. Building large commercial buildings with SIPs offers long term savings in energy costs versus other construction methods. Some companies want to portray a corporate image of environment responsibility by building an energy efficient building. Building with SIPS helps them demonstrate their commitment to achieving energy efficiency in construction.
Typically, a small residential project will involve a designer, a builder and a homeowner, all of whom could well be the same person. There are some differences when building for commercial. Commercial projects usually involve architects, engineers, project managers, site supervisors, site safety personnel and general contractors. The process usually begins many months in advance and the duration of the project can last up to a year, or even more. Clear communication and project documents are important to the success of the project.
Demonstrating code compliance in commercial construction is also important. The Insulspan SIP System is the only SIP system that has code evaluation reports in both Canada and the US. CCMC Evaluation Report 13016-R confirms compliance with code requirements in Canada and ICC-ES Evaluation Report ESR-1295 confirms compliance with codes in the United States. With experienced technical personnel on staff, Insulspan is able to address construction questions and issues as they arise.
