At Chatterton Builders we are excited about innovative ways to create high performing energy efficient homes. How do we do this?
Structural Insulated Panels allow:
A major factor is what the walls and roofs are made from as this effectively helps form the building envelope, and provides structural strength.
Chatterton Builders are trained and experienced in the use of structural insulated panels. Having successfully completed a large number of SIPs builds over the last 11 years we can claim to be leaders in this field of construction.
Structural Insulated Panels are slowly becoming more well known in New Zealand due to the success they have seen so far and the growing evidence, both here and overseas, of their benefits for insulation, strength and rapid installation. The exceptional strength and bracing properties are often over shadowed by the insulation benefits but the strength, and the ductility, of this product is significant in addressing a number of issues, including their suitability for earthquake zones. To find out more about their suitability download our FREE informative brochure on this page, on the benefits of SIPs in earthquake zones.
Whilst the material is slightly more expensive cost savings occur in build time and don’t forget the long term savings on energy.
Chatterton Builders also has its own SIPs panel assembly plant. We are very fortunate to be able to assemble our own panels inside our assembly plant before transportation to site. This allows us to assemble without the delays that weather and on site conditions can often produce. It also means your panels don’t spend excessive amounts of time exposed to the elements. We take the panels to site where they are erected with the assistance of a crane, without delay, allowing us to progress the build to a weatherproof shell a lot sooner.
