Expertise and Innovation with SIPs

As a partnership, MCD Construction and SIPCO have harnessed the power of SIP technology to revolutionise the construction industry. We offer comprehensive support from the initial design phase through to installation. Our teams work closely with clients to ensure that each project benefits from the full range of SIPs’ advantages, including energy efficiency, sustainability, and architectural freedom.

Reducing heating and cooling costs for buildings

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are a cornerstone of modern, energy-efficient construction. Composed of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically made of Oriented Strand Board (OSB), SIPs offer exceptional strength and insulation. This unique construction enables SIPs to provide unparalleled thermal efficiency, greatly reducing heating and cooling costs for buildings.

The Technical Edge of SIPs

SIPs are celebrated for their high thermal resistance, with R-values exceeding traditional construction methods. This superior insulation capability is due to the continuous core of foam insulation, which eliminates thermal bridging and ensures airtight construction. Additionally, the structural integrity of SIPs allows for greater spans and fewer load-bearing walls, offering increased design flexibility and open space planning.

Sustainability and Environmental Benefits

SIPs contribute significantly to sustainable construction practices. The panels are manufactured in a controlled environment, reducing onsite waste and improving overall construction efficiency. The energy savings achieved with SIPs also contribute to lower carbon emissions over the building’s lifespan. Furthermore, the materials used in SIPs, such as the OSB facings, are often sourced from renewable forests, enhancing the environmental benefits.

Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

We are committed to delivering the highest quality SIPs designs, manufactured to precise specifications for optimum performance. Focusing on sustainability, striving to minimise environmental impact whilst promoting energy-efficient construction practices. By choosing a SIPs design you are investing in a future of sustainable, high-performance buildings.

Integrating SIP technology represents a pivotal shift towards more efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective construction methods. We are at the forefront of this transformation, leveraging extensive experience and dedication to quality to deliver superior construction solutions. We aim to set new standards in the industry, driving the adoption of green building practices and enhancing the built environment for future generations.

Key Benefits of SIPs

  • Energy Efficiency: The high thermal resistance of SIPs leads to significant energy savings for heating and cooling, contributing to lower utility bills and a reduced environmental impact.
  • Structural Integrity: SIPs provide superior strength and durability, making structures more resistant to external forces. This strength allows for greater design flexibility and the possibility of larger open spaces within buildings.
  • Speed of Construction: The off-site manufactured nature of SIPs significantly shortens construction timelines. Projects can move from foundation to frame much faster than with traditional building methods, reducing labour costs.
  • Environmental Sustainability: With reduced on-site waste and improved energy efficiency, SIPs contribute to more sustainable construction practices. The materials used in SIPs can often be sourced from renewable or recycled sources. Furthermore, SIPs are fully recyclable, the OSB (Oriented Strand Boards) are made from fast-growing trees, and the EPS foam is made from partially recycled material.
  • Indoor Air Quality: The airtight seal created by SIPs improves indoor air quality by minimising the infiltration of outdoor pollutants and allergens, leading to healthier living/working environments.
