Creating sustainable buildings for our future, together: Hemsec and SIP Build UK work together to build on a shared vision.
Today, Hemsec and SIP Build UK announce their partnership with the aim of providing a cost-effective, end-to-end solution for the creation of energy-efficient building systems. With energy prices soaring and millions of UK households living in fuel poverty, we must consider the ways we construct now more than ever.
Many house builders are driving energy savings through a combination of materials and technology; however, we believe that a fabric-first approach delivers huge benefits for the homeowner and the environment. In addition, as building regulations change, a fabric-first approach will increase thermal efficiency to futureproof the build by considering the entire building envelope, with construction materials sitting at the heart of this.
Building with 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 & Marketing Director at Hemsec commented:
“At Hemsec, we are on an exciting journey to become a B-Corp certified company 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.”
Hemsec is the UK’s leading independent and longest-standing composite insulated panel manufacturers. With over 90 years of experience in the industry, Hemsec has played a key role in shaping the use of insulated panels across many industries.
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.”
