Describe the end use of the building: This two bedroom, two bath home was built in a partnership between Out of the Box and The City of Panama City to showcase SIP panels home options for residents affected by the hurricane Michael.

How did SIP construction help you get this job?
Our steel SIP construction and wind rating of 186mph were the key selling points for this project as it is still recovering from hurricane Michael.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 5-1/2" panels
SIP roof thickness and core material: 7-1/2" panels

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
Speed of construction and highlighting the long term benefits of steel SIPs panels in hurricane prone areas.

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
We utilize steel in our homes and have engineered to 186mph winds. In utilizing all steel, our homes are mold, mildew and termite resistant as well as fire resistant. All material used in our homes are 100% recyclable.

Describe any other energy-saving materials used in the building envelope other than SIPs. List U-values of windows used and the U or R-value of any insulation materials:
We utilize low-E impact windows in our homes and the R-values for our panels are R-35 for exterior walls and R-47 for our roof panels.
