Ease of construction, overall cost effectiveness, great building envelope with substantial contributions to energy costs. The SIPs provide a superior insulated envelope, while windows bring in plenty of daylight – all helping to reduce energy usage.Landscaped swales allowed rainwater to percolate into the ground. The most sustainable feature of the project is homes’ size, which is “among the most important determinants of environmental impact” (Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, 2010).
