Build your dream home with Smart SIPs
Using our Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) enables homeowners to achieve the home of their dreams. WIthout the typical limitations of traditional stud walls and conventional framing, you can build a custom home even on the most difficult blocks. The superior strength and customisation capabilities of SIPs allows you and your building designer to get creative without having to worry about truss, walls and support beams.
Your new SIPs home will also be safer with a higher resilience to severe weather and natural disasters. Should a natural disaster happen, homes built with SIPs typically see reduced structural damage and repair costs.
When it comes to building your home, don’t settle for standard outdated methods that may limit your design options. Instead, build a custom home that meets your design brief and budget with SIPs. Learn more about our home design services.
Build a sustainable home
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important. Building with SIPs allows you to achieve a sustainable build that will benefit the environment in multiple ways. This includes:
A home built with SIPs will typically see a reduced amount of construction waste. As the panels are pre-cut, they only require assembling. This reduces the need for onsite personalisation and human error, reducing waste.
SIPs provide a better insulated structure, resulting in less air leakage. Less air leakage reduces the need for heating and cooling. Your home’s energy consumption will be significantly less reducing your carbon footprint.
Cost-effective now and long-term
Building a sustainable home isn’t only good for the environment, it’s also good for your back pocket. Across the life of your new home, you’ll also see ongoing savings with your new home’s reduced operating costs. When compared to a similar home in a similar location but built with timber framing, a home built with SIPs will see a significantly reduced cost in their energy bills.

Building your home with SIPs is also cost-effective. Although the panels are slightly more than traditional framing, you’ll see reduced costs in multiple areas of your build, including:
Faster installation - assembly time is much faster as they arrive ready to assemble. Achieve lockup quicker with reduced framing days and delays.
Precision cut panels - reduce human error and time spent cutting timber to size but using SIPs, they come precision-cut and ready to assemble.
Reduced cost of construction waste - you’ll see less construction waste due to the panels being pre-cut.
Complete two jobs at once - SIPs are pre-insulated. So you’ll achieve framing and insulation at the same time.
Avoid typical limitations that come with conventional framing.
Superior insulation for reduced home operating costs.
Faster installation gets you to a quicker lockup.
