SIP Build UK are based in Yorkshire and are a truly nationwide designer, manufacturer and installer of the Kingspan TEK SIP system.
We are currently the only BOPAS (Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme) accredited SIP system in the UK.
SIPs are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions. This offsite fabrication means that your weatherproof building shell can be complete just a few days after the ground works are ready to receive them.
SIP panels are either 142mm or 172mm thick. Typically they are 1220mm wide and can be as long as 7.5 metres in length to suit each individual project.
Fabricated using timber from sustainable sources, SIPs use less wood than timber frame systems and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.
The high strength to weight ratio of SIP panels allows large sections of your building to be fitted at once, speeding up the time required on site for erection. The offsite fabrication reduces waste and also helps minimise embodied and transport energy.
SIP insulation exceeds the current building regulation requirements on its own. The foam insulation has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) rating of zero and has a low global warming potential (GWP).
Through their strength and ease of connection, SIPs offer the designer more versatility than other construction materials. This allows possibilities beyond the conventional, such as sloping roof panels. When utilised, these can create more open space to maximise the potential of any building plot.
The result is a build system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs will save you time, money and labour.
