Advanced SIP Envelope System installed by Westwind Oak Buildings

16th March

Advanced SIP Envelope

Our team have been on site erecting an oak frame extension with an advanced SIP envelope system. It took the team just over a week to complete both on site at our local project in Somerset.

We design the oak frame and the SIP envelope concurrently. As a result our clients have the reassurance of knowing that the two building systems will fit perfectly together. The oak frames are hand crafted in our Laurel Farm workshops and the Kingspan TEK Building Systems are precision cut at Kingspan’s fully automated plant using state of the art technology.

Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs)

Westwind is one of the first (and most experienced) oak framing companies in the UK able to design, supply and fit SIP (Structurally Insulated Panel) envelopes to clad and insulate your oak frame. This gives you the option of a dry shell, super insulated and air-tight building. The SIP panels are pre-cut to match your project’s engineering and design specifications.

This specialist service is facilitated through our official partnership with the BBA certified Kingspan TEK Building System. This allows us to design and deliver the Kingspan TEK Building System to fit our green oak frames to exacting standards. Construction times are streamlined because of the efficient system, making it easy to predict project completion times.

Designed in-house and alongside the oak frame, Westwind can offer a high-tech and time saving solution, solving the problems of air-tightness and cold bridging whilst providing u-values as low as 0.1 W/m2.K.

Key Benefits of a SIP Envelope system include:

  • Fast, cost effective and predictable building method
  • Produces buildings with high energy efficiency
  • TEK SIPs are recognised by major building warranty providers
  • Allows design flexibility and precision engineering
  • Can provide 10% additional floor space
  • Reduces onsite waste
