Las Vegas firm SSA Architecture was able to cut energy use by 50 percent and save more than $1 million dollars from the construction budget by specifying SIPs for this 68,000 sq. ft. elementary school.

Noise Control

SIPs were chosen is because they help limit both sound conduction from the outside and reduce reverberation of sound inside the building. “Nellis Air Force Base is one of the busiest Air Force bases in the country,” said Small. “SIPs add significant sound improvement for no extra cost.” Interior walls were also designed to limit the number of parallel walls that cause sound reverberations.
