To simplify the consenting process for structural insulated panels (SIPs), we need to know how they perform locally. A BRANZ research project is helping by examining SIP durability, earthquake and fire performance.

The Build series on prefab continues, focusing this time on panel or two-dimensional systems. Both cost and time-effective, prefab panels can also have excellent thermal characteristics.
Building systems that include higher levels of prefabrication and off-site manufacture are potential solutions to New Zealand’s urgent housing need. Current research will give a better overall understanding of the performance of sips in New Zealand.
