This stunning self build property delivered the dream home for our client. The vision of completely open plan areas, stunning vaulted ceiling spaces and stairwells made SIPs an obvious choice. The vaulted ceilings were formed with precision during the SIPs  design stages and this complex roof them installed to exacting precision on site ensured the clients precise vision could be delivered.

The specification of the Kingspan TEK 172mm panel ensured that U Values a low as 0.15 were achieved straight off the shelf which also delivered on the thermal, environmental and sustainability requirements requested by the client.

This stunning property has endless features and is an aesthetic master piece, all of which was delivered through detailed design, engineering and installation by SIP Build UK as the appointed SIPs specialist.

SIP Build UK took complete responsibility for the design, engineering and installation of the SIPs including all internal walls, floors and the huge amounts of additional structure in both glulam and steel to deliver this open plan, vaulted, stunning property.

This project is an exemplar representation of what can be achieved through the specification, design and installation of high performance offsite timber systems. The detail of the clients requirements and vision were exact. Maximising space, open plan, vaulted areas with nice clean internal lines without structural supports showing. Huge areas of corner Bi Fold doors were demanded to further exaggerate the feeling of open space, bringing the outside into the home.

The specification of the Kingspan TEK 172mm system combined with the appointment of SIPs specialist SIP Build UK ensured that this could be delivered on site on time on budget – another key requisite.

This project would not have worked with various trades  taking responsibility for different structural elements required so through SIP Build UK the client, architect and follow on trades had just one point of contact regarding this fabric first, thermally efficient SIPs system.

This really is a showcase of what can be delivered when specifying SIPs systems to aesthetically demanding projects that deliver on the thermal, environmental and sustainable requirements of our industry everytime whilst ensuring clients dreams are delivered.
