SIP benefits for this job:
The owner wanted to build a structure of red iron building. Once we proved the energy efficiency of the SIPs compared to a red iron build, they were interested in going with SIPs. This is a non profit organization, so cost was a big line item on their wish list.

SIP wall thickness: R26 wall 
SIP roof thickness: No vaulted trusses, roof sprayed with spray foam

Benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
This project had a very tight space to work within. We could not disturb the existing rugby fields or grandstand and 2' structure on both ends. 
Overall energy consumption was an important factor due the them being non profit, the only income for this project was from member donations.

Innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
Vaulted ceiling 
Crows nest for camera and announcement of games 
Design in gable truss which covers the lower deck 
Needed to be able to incorporate world class championship games

Blower door test results:
0.08 ACH50

Roof - 6 furnaces, they can zone areas separately. Able to shut off during off season

Please list any energy-efficient products or design features:
All lighting is LED 
Large walk in 
Water saving faucets 
Bottle filling stations by Level Z Coolers 
Cultured marble showers

Any additional sustainable materials or design features:  
Deck's design with Modern View Decking and stainless steel cable rails. This gives you less obstructioned view. The club was organized in 1962. We reused the existing goal posts from the original field to make the bar top.

Additional comments:
Has a reception area with bar to serve, and a warming kitchen to prepare for events 
This is the only club house in the US that you can see two separate ball games playing at the same time! 
Has an elevator for easy access for handicap visitors and ease in moving larger items
