The move reflects current trends in construction with energy prices soaring and millions of UK households living in fuel poverty, and the partnership believes that a fabric-first approach is the best way to deliver significant benefits for the homeowner as well as the environment.
The timing is right, with changes in Building Regulations meaning that a fabric-first approach to improving thermal efficiency will be a logical choice for many, offering the opportunity to future-proof the build by considering the entire building envelope. Construction materials sit at the heart of this.
Building with SIPs can significantly contribute to meeting Future Home Standards and Passivhaus standards, resulting in a reduction in the number of days that require heating to be generated, significantly reducing energy bills. Additionally, SIPs homes have high levels of airtightness, resulting in cooler homes during the warmer weather.
Through the partnership, Hemsec and SIP Build UK aim to build on existing synergies to provide high-quality sustainable building systems, with a focus on taking responsibility in today’s environment for the generations of tomorrow.
