Energy savings that SIPs provide through continuous insulation envelope and limited thermal bridging, the amount of construction waste on site was significantly reduced. Exterior panels were used to resist vertical loading and lateral loading, both out-of-plane and in-plane. Shear wall holdowns were easily incorporated into the design and installed in the field. Panel joints were lapped and connected for energy and structural requirements. Panels incorporating complex elevation and opening geometry being assembled in the shop eased construction on site.
