Construction

The panels are slotted together to form the structureof the building

– without framing


Structurally insulated panel systems sips

Structurally Insulated Panel Systems (SIPs)

Can be used as:

  • Walls

  • Floors

  • Roofs

  • Interior walls

  • Additions to other construction systems

Research question

Research Question

Are SIPs the sustainable solution to standard light framed load-bearing construction in New Zealand?


New zealand light timber frame house construction

New Zealand light timber frame house construction

  • 90% of all new houses in NZ

  • From softwood plantation timber

  • Framing comprises 15-25% of the wall

  • Treated with CCA

  • Manufactured from 60% of the tree

  • Large amount of waste generated

  • Requires insulation

  • Subject to settlement creating draughts

Structural insulated panels systems sips

Structural Insulated Panels systems (SIPs)

  • From fast growth plantation timbers

  • Foam insulation from petroleum industry

  • Comprises all of the wall excluding exterior cladding

  • Timber panel and plastic foam are both chemically treated.

  • Engineered wood panels use of 90% of the tree

  • Very little waste generated

  • Excellent insulation and air tightness capabilities

Renewable

Timber is plantation growth – renewable

Insulation can be renewable material

Timber is plantation growth

Insulation is recyclable but not renewable

Waste efficient

Waste efficient

  • Construction waste makes up 50 % of all landfill content, 38% is timber and wood fibre

  • SIPs generate less waste

    • in primary processing stages

    • in secondary processing stages

    • in construction phase


Healthy

Healthy

  • Manufacturing health risks with both processes

  • Construction health risks are reduced with SIPs

  • SIPs construction is more air tight

  • SIPs have greater thermal resistance

  • Humidity control is easier with SIPs

SUSTAINABILITY


Are sips the sustainable construction solution in nz

Timber surplus

Limited petrochemical industry

Skilled labour shortages Relatively low cost of labour

Inefficient transport network

Timber shortage

Petrochemical industry

Skilled labour shortages

High cost of labour

Efficient land transport network

Demand for reduced construction period

Are SIPs the sustainable construction solution in NZ?


Conclusion

Conclusion

SIPs are not currently the sustainable solution to standard light framed load-bearing construction in New Zealand
