How did SIP construction help you get this job?
SIPs were the prefer enclosure system for this glu-lam frame structure; provided the owner with a very quick dry-in on this fast track project; as a timber frame manufacturer, Carolina Timberworks uses or suggests the use of SIPs for many of their projects... it was only right for them to use SIPs for their own project.

SIP wall thickness and core material:
6-1/2" EPS

SIP roof thickness and core material:
10-1/4" EPS

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
All of the above; project broke ground on May 15 and was completed on Dec 13, 2019.

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
Primary structure is a glu-lam frame; SIPs are 16' tall on the eaves and up to 20' tall on the gable ends.

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Mini-splits in the Offices; gas heaters in the shop (no AC)
