SIPs Sustainability

By using Kingspan TEK® Building Systems you are contributing towards a more sustainable method of construction. SIPs create minimal site waste, as the kits are designed, cut and palletised in a quality controlled, factory environment. As all the components are delivered from one source, there are fewer deliveries, less transport, less congestion, less noise and traffic pollution, reducing the overall project impact on the environment. As the Kingspan TEK® Building system is factory manufactured, there will be minimal levels of site wastage, resulting in minimal trips to landfill.

The manufacture facility for the Kingspan TEK® Building System is certified to BES 6001 (Framework Standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products) ‘Very Good’. In addition, the OSB facing of the Kingspan TEK® Building System is PEFC Chain of Custody certified. The insulating core of the panels is manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
