Commercial Design with Structural Insulated Panels

Commercial Design with Structural Insulated Panels

to take this course

This one-hour course will discuss the benefits of commercial building design with structural insulated panels (SIPs), including energy savings, waste minimization and other sustainable contributions. The designer will gain a better understanding of how to properly utilize SIPs.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss the basics of SIPs, including their composition, common engineering methods, applicable codes and standards, and how SIPs contribute to sustainable design
  2. Identify the energy-efficient characteristics of SIPs and how they improve whole building energy efficiency
  3. Describe the waste reducing and product life-cycle benefits of building with SIPs relative to traditional wood framing
  4. Explain how SIPs contribute to better indoor air quality through a reduction in both air infiltration and interior off-gassing
