Describe the end use of the building:
The Stencil Office Building is home to rented office and retail space. The owner's office suite is on the upper floor/penthouse.

How did SIP construction help you get this job?
The owners/builders were looking for an open timber concept with excellent lines and architecture. SIP construction was perfect solution for the clean wall lines and distinct roof lines. Speed of assembly was also an important decision factor as they wanted to have the building completed within the year.

SIP wall thickness and core material: 6" wall panels with EPS insulating core
SIP roof thickness and core material: 10" roof panels with EPS insulating core
Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
Innes Henderson with s2s Architects commented, " The utilization of the glue-lam timber frame and the SIP wall and roof panels created a nearly seamless systems built approach to doing this large commercial building."

Describe any innovative design elements or structural engineering involved:
The combination of a timber and SIP in a commercial environment, and getting away from a steel frame/steel stud construction made for a warmer and more inviting environment.

Describe the HVAC system used on the project:
Forced Air Natural Gas heating system with individual zoned areas for efficiency.

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:
The Stencil Office Building installed high performance, Low E, aluminum clad, commercial windows.

Please list any energy-efficient products or design features, such as lighting, hot water heating, appliances, passive solar:
LED lights were used throughout the building; large clerestory windows provide abundant natural light.

Please list any sustainable materials or design features not listed above, such as recycled materials, low-VOC finishes, landscaping, etc.:
Although the landscaping has not been completed, it will include South Dakota river rock and boulders. The interior features natural finishes on the glue-lam timbers, and polished concrete floors.

Any additional comments on the project:
The Stencil Group is a regional premier commercial builder, specializing in multi-family housing. This was a positive experience for the organization. We're hopeful they will carry this experience forward on future collaborations with SIPs. The contemporary design, open office concept combined with natural elements creates an inviting place to work and conduct business. It is a nice addition to a progressive community like Sioux Falls.
