Describe the end use of the building:
SIP panels were incorporated into the project by the design team before our company bid it, so it didn't help us get the project.

How did SIP construction help you get this job?

SIP wall thickness and core material:
6" EPS panels

SIP roof thickness and core material:
8" EPS core

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
It saved construction installation time, and it is saving the owner money in energy costs.

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
The open web timber trusses help to provide a very pleasing open and comfortable yet aesthetically appealing space. The SIP panels help this open truss system provide the insulated roofing system that helps accomplish the open design.

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Ducted ground Air-handling units.

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. (judged only for High Performance Category)
Rigid and batt insulation in the walls and insulated glass in the storefront and windows systems.

Please list any energy-efficient products or design features, such as lighting, hot water heating, appliances, passive solar (judged only for High Performance Category:
LED lighting everywhere and presumably energy-saving appliances by owner. A lot of glass on the east and south elevations gives some measure of solar heat gain in winter. See-through exterior wall natural gas fireplace with insulated glass is a nice design feature.

Please list any sustainable materials or design features not listed above, such as recycled materials, low-VOC finishes, landscaping, etc. (judged only for High Performance Category):
Most all materials were low-VOC; waste hauler for project typically is able to recycle 75% of construction waste on new building projects, but that is a presumption.

Any additional comments on the project:
SIP panels help to provide an attractive open upscale natural interior and exterior environment for residents using the building while providing an efficient and comfortable home for the facilities management team that uses the same building while interfacing with the residents. The compact and well-insulated SIP panels helped the efficient use of the space and the construction time, and will also save the owner money in energy usage over the life of the building.
