7-11 boosts energy efficiency with SIPs

In the November/December issue of Commercial Construction & Renovation magazine, Premier SIPs Technical Manager Joe Pasma writes about the use of structural insulated panels (SIPs) in retail stores.  The article mentions both 7-11 and Starbucks as forward-looking corporations looking to reduce their energy use by specifying SIPs in their stores.

SIPA Dealer/Distributor member MM&I Construction & Design, Inc. has designed and built more than 90 7-Eleven stores with SIPs throughout the country.  

In the article, Pasma discusses the following benefits of using SIPs in retail construction:

  • SIP-built structures are more airtight than stick-framed buildings
  • SIPS provide continuous insulation throughout a building’s walls and roof
  • SIP-built retail stores look no different than stores built with traditional construction, preserving the signature architecture of national and regional chains
  • SIPs help speed up construction
  • SIPs are compatible with nearly any type of building system, including poured concrete or block foundations
