Hemsec and SIP Build UK Share SIPs vision.

Hemsec and SIP Build UK have announced a partnership that aims to provide a cost-effective, end-to-end solution for the creation of energy-efficient building systems.

Building with structural insulated panels (SIPs) can significantly contribute to meeting Future Home Standards and Passivhaus standards, resulting in reduced days that require heating, significantly reducing energy bills. Additionally, when building with SIPs, homes are airtight, 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.

Sarah Gazzola, sales and marketing director at Hemsec, said: "At Hemsec, we are on an exciting journey to become a B-Corp certified corporation and therefore it is extremely important for us to build relationships with organisations where there is a synergy in our values and purpose.

With a strong alignment in the direction we're heading, we are looking forward to building on the relationship we have with SIP Build UK and hope to make a real difference in the construction industry through providing high-quality panels that contribute to an energy-efficient future for homeowners."

Chris Duckworth, managing director at SBUK Group, added: "The future direction allows us to make the most of being a market leader with Nationwide Coverage. SIPs are regularly featured on Grand Designs and other property programmes, we have seen demand soar in this marketplace.

Energy efficiency is harder to achieve using traditional methods and the short supply of brick layers is moving many developers and builders towards offsite manufacture.

Our partnership with Hemsec and our dedicated teams and systems enables us to continue our passion for better products and processes which aim to increase efficiency, quality, resident satisfaction, environmental performance and sustainability."
