This building is located on blueberry farm. Ground floor uses for packing blueberries and temporary storage purpose. Second floor is residential area.

Since this region is surrounded by mountains, it is very cold in Winter. Client wanted to build the agricultural building with wood material. He thought a conventional wood frame house is too cold inside in Winter. That's reason why he chose SIPs.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6 1/2" Neopor
SIP roof thickness and core material: 8 1/4" Neopor

Sip construction cost more but it saves energy more than 60% and good for our health. SIPs also saved 50% on framing labor. The tightness of the SIP building envelope prevents a polluted air from outside. Certified by Passive House Institute Korea (PHIK)  2.4L (A1 Class)

HERS Index: 24 (Korea does not use HERS Index but 24L is same as HERS Index 24)
Blower door test results: 0.68 ACH50

Employed a heat recovery ventilation system, energy from exhausted stale indoor air to temper incoming fresh air. Heat is retained during cooler season and moved during warmer seasons. This system capture about 77% of the energy already expanded to temper incoming air.  Window frame and glass: Kommerling 88Plus Uf = 0.80 w/m2k and Triple glass Uf = 0.75 w/m2k 2 inch EIFs (exterior insulation and finish system) EVB (exterior vertical blind): Somfy Airtightness tape (window, SIPs joints): Proclima Tescon Vana
