TOWN & COUNTRY
SIPs CONSTRUCTION SPECIALIST
#nu is excited to announce the launch of their town & country division where for the first time we are expanding our renowned luxury design and build services into counties such as Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Essex, Gloucestershire, Cambridgeshire & Buckinghamshire.
We are a keen supporter of traditional and modern construction methods, SIP's are a new technology for building better environmental and energy-efficient structures. They can also be erected faster than any other building method and produce a stronger structure than traditional buildings. Our Projects Director Will Nicol has completed several SIPs projects including the one on the presentation video below. Download our SIPs brochure here.
What are SIP's
SIPs are a modern alternative to traditional timber-framed construction. They consist of two outer layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB) sandwiched around an Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) core.
SIPs function as the structural element for property walls, roofs, and suspended floors.
Using Super-high insulation
Optimising solar gain through the provision of openings and shading
Optimising natural ventilation
Using the thermal mass of the building fabric
Using energy from occupants, electronic devices, cookers and so on
Whether it's a traditional look you're seeking - or a more contemporary style - an oak framed structure will enhance any property and add value to your home.
We endeavour to always provide the best possible design solution. Sometimes depending on the complexity of the outdoor structure, we may need to integrate structural steelwork into the design. We offer a full in house fabrication service should the project demand.
