Description

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.

New Zealand has an urgent need for quality housing that can be built quickly and affordably. In response, the use of prefabricated building systems is becoming more widespread as recognition grows of their potential to provide resilient high-quality buildings.

Scope

This article includes:

  • Off-site prefabrication speeds installation
  • SIP composition and benefits
  • Research focusing on New Zealand conditions
    • Delving into the durability
    • Performance under earthquake loading
    • Fire performance
  • Project will help develop simplified compliance for SIPs
