The building will be used as a sustainable, high-performance assisted living residence for senior citizens in central MN.

The builders are fans of SIP technology and wanted to support a local manufacturer in Extreme Panel Technologies. As this is an assisted living residence for senior citizens, SIPs were chosen as the building method to ensure structural integrity, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency for end-users.

SIP wall thickness: 6 1/2"
SIP roof thickness: 12 1/4"

A radiant in-floor heat and mini splits for the heating and cooling of this structure were selected. Due to the air-tight quality of SIPs, residents are more comfortable and are able to control the temperature in each of their individual rooms while enjoying a higher level of indoor air quality. The mini-splits create a negative pressure system, allowing residents to remain comfortably in their own rooms in case of sickness.
