This building has a SIP elevator shaft which saves time & money vs a concrete block elevator shaft.

Continuous insulation and air-tight quality of SIPs created an energy-efficient, quiet project that enables electrification and decarbonization with less effort. This allowed the builder to save on time and associated labor costs without compromising structural integrity. The construction costs as well as the energy savings were massive. There was also notably less on-site waste and environmental contamination.
