Describe the use of the building: Building Supply Show Room

Just over a year ago Lake Chelan Building Supply in Washington State burned down in the 2015 devastating forest fires. The needed to rebuild their showroom with a smarter system to help avoid and defend from future fire related disasters.  SIPS were chosen for fire prevention features such as a significant enclosure design strategy to help defend from wildland fires; enclosed assembly which does not include venting of an attic or roof, meaning no openings to screen and seal from deadly wind-borne embers.  SIPS have a solid insulation core eliminating heat-carrying air flow within the cavity.

building will be able to adapt efficiently to the large temperature swings and IAQ: reduced infiltration and outside pollutants

SIP wall thickness: 6" and 8" EPS SIP Walls
SIP roof thickness: 12" EPS SIPS Roof

No venting in roof to decrease chance over ability to draw wind borne embers in. The new building is exceptionally stronger and extremely more efficient for the huge climate temperature swings in this region.
