Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)Suitable for interior and exterior wallsSIPs are strong, prefabricated modular panels that slot together to form the walls, floor and sometimes roof of a home. SIP-constructed homes do not require any timber or steel framework – the panels themselves form the structure. This speeds up on-site construction times and reduces labour costs compared to traditional building methods, and because of this, construction using SIPs is rapidly becoming a mainstream option. SIPs are made from a thick foam ‘core’ sandwiched between two sheets of rigid material. Most commonly, this is a composite engineered-timber product known as oriented strand board (OSB). However more and more manufacturers are bringing SIPs products to market, using a variety of outer sheeting materials, such as fibre-cement sheeting or plywood.

Rear extension Designed by Gait, the modest extension to this Brisbane house has a simple two-storey form constructed with SIPs for the walls and roof. It served to reduce construction time and allowed an economy of site labour.
