Lake Chelan Building Supply in Washington State burned to the ground in the 2015 during a devastating forest fire. The owners desired rebuilding the showroom with a smarter construction system to defend from future disasters. SIPs were chosen due to proven fire prevention features such as an enclosure design strategy to defend from wildland fires. The enclosed assembly does not include venting through the attic or roof, thus providing 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. Additionally. the building will be able to adapt effectively to the large temperature swings and reduced infiltration of outside pollutants.
