Panelized Buiding Systems
From the Structural Insulated Panel Association:
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy-efficient and cost-effective.
Here, insulated wall and roofing panels—built at an offsite manufacturing facility—are erected and lowered into place during an onsite build.
