Benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy? The benefits of using SIPs for this project was that we were able to construct the shell of the building in a very rapid manor and were able to keep the other trades for the project on schedule.

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved: The owner was able to conceal all of the electrical lines in the SIP panels and did not have to run conduit lines like most large storage buildings.
