Structurally Insulated Panel (SIPS) New Build House Site Visit

07/04/2016, by Ron McGregor, in Site Visit, 0 comments

McGregor Garrow Architects were invited out to visit the site of a new build house.  It was being constructed in a new Structurally Insulated Panel System (SIPS), by MGO SIP Systems.

After the drive to Kincraig, we were greeted by Phil Slater, Managing Director of MGO SIP Systems.

We were shown the various detail components which made up the panel system. The panels are lightweight and are lifted into place in large sections and joined together by a simple cam locking system. The complete structure can be quickly erected on site.

The panels are the perfect solution for rapidly constructing thermally efficient, airtight homes and buildings. The panels can be used for walls, partitions, roofs and floors.

Afterwards, Phil took us to a nearby café, where we spoke in detail about the visit.
