SIPs improves a project’s overall efficiency and job site accuracy. When you use NW Building Systems ready-to-assemble (RTA) package, the building can start as soon as the SIPs are delivered, using our detailed, high-quality shop drawings and installation guide.
Building with ready-to-assemble SIPs also reduces your dependence on framing crews. Utilizing smaller crews decreases your overhead labor costs and limits the time your crew stands around waiting for materials or a foreman. In fact, using structural insulated panels reduces framing labor needs by as much as 55% according to a study conducted by RS Means for BASF.
Additionally, using prefabricated SIPs significantly reduces job site waste. In short, material utilization rates can be as high as 93% according to a different BASF study. This is because the structural insulated panels are manufactured off-site and delivered to your job site ready to assemble.
