SIP Student Accommodation Construction
Characteristics of student accommodation construction projects include tight programme timings, sustainability and energy efficiency. Minimal disruption is also a common objective for both city-centre and campus based sites.
Whether used for the full structure or to wrap concrete or steel frames, the i-SIP System is normally installed in a few days without the need for scaffolding. A watertight structure is ready for fit-out weeks earlier than with traditional methods.
Tight manufacturing tolerances, low thermal bridging losses and the inherent high insulation values of the panels result in highly energy efficient buildings. Typically it is possible to use a lower specified heating system than would be possible with traditional construction. This, combined with greater manufacturing flexibility, means that M&E costs are often substantially reduced.
Our SIP building engineers and design teams work in close partnership with all stakeholders to ensure that the cost and time saving opportunities are fully realised throughout design and installation. We are fully committed to using BIM to collaborate effectively with all partners, ensuring that even the most complex projects proceed smoothly.
