  1. Congratulations about the project guys. It is really amazing. It proves actually what the SIP System can deliver to the end users as well as to the developers, builders, architects etc.
    I hope more and more people to change their options and become more green, using alternative, efficient ways of building, such as Structural Insulated Panels. I am interested to meet such people, therefore I can be contacted via email (alinaups@gmail.com), willing to provide with more details about what SIPs mean.
