We are currently involved with a number of new houses for private clients, including two new farm houses (illustrated – below: Aberlour, foot of page: Mugdock).

Both these houses are designed for SIP construction. The panels for the projects are the fully insulated type which do not require a timber sub-frame. This almost completely eliminates thermal bridging and, along with being an inherently air-tight construction, can achieve excellent energy performance.

One of the main features internally of using SIP construction is the lack of cross timber supports in the roof, allowing for excellent use of space below the roofslope. The effect of the open roof space can be quite dramatic!

We have also designed a series of very cost-effective house types using SIP construction, including designs to Passivhaus standard – please contact us for more details.
