How Energy Efficient Is An Insulated Modular Garden Building?

Energy Efficient Modular Garden Buildings & Extensions

At Myndstone, we pride ourselves on constructing modular garden buildings with exceptional thermal efficiency and durability, surpassing the performance of many traditional structures.

Our secret lies in the use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), a modern composite building material that revolutionises the way we create sturdy and energy-efficient spaces.

Q: What are SIPs?

SIPs are composite panels that integrate various components of conventional building techniques, including studs, joists, insulation, vapour barrier, and air barrier. They consist of two layers of oriented strand board (OSB) with a rigid core of expanded polyurethane foam sandwiched between them. Our expert craftsmen ensure airtightness by securely fastening the panels together with high-tensile self-tapping screws and using expanding adhesive foam.

Q: How do SIPs benefit our customers?

Quicker Build Times: SIPs enable faster construction compared to traditional methods, leading to predictable project completion times with fewer specialist tradespeople required.

Added Value Post Build: SIP structures are attractive to future buyers and often achieve higher sale values due to their low running costs and environmental benefits.

More Cost-Effective: Rapid build times reduce on-site costs, including labor, project management, and temporary accommodation. SIPs’ lighter weight also reduces foundation requirements, allowing for cost-saving alternatives like screw piles.

Clever Use of Space: SIPs offer space efficiency as they act as a significant part of the structure, requiring less structural support and allowing for thinner wall sections, maximizing usable internal space.

Year-Round Installations: SIPs can be erected in any weather, reducing disruption to follow-on trades and ensuring more consistent and faster builds with minimal potential over-run costs.

Q:. What are the real benefits of SIPs?

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Timber Usage: SIPs use timber from FSC accredited plantations, and the OSB used in the exterior requires 35% less timber than traditional methods.

Reduced Cold Bridging: SIPs minimize cold bridging, resulting in up to 50% less energy required to heat a room.

Reduced Heat Loss: SIPs’ core insulation outperforms other methods, leading to improved thermal performance and energy efficiency.

Improved Energy Efficiency: Building with SIPs reduces energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions due to their high levels of thermal performance.

Shorter Supply Chain: Our SIPs are manufactured in the UK using a limited number of ingredients, shortening the supply chain, reducing overall costs, and minimizing congestion, noise, and air pollution.

Less Waste: Smart computer-aided design and advanced cutting systems minimize waste. Excess materials can be recycled or re-engineered for smaller-scale projects.

Reduced Foundations: SIPs’ lightweight and thermal efficiency reduce the need for heavy lifting machinery and foundations, avoiding the use of polluting concrete in most instances.

Q: Are SIPs an environmentally responsible choice?

Yes, SIPs are an eco-friendly option as they promote sustainable timber usage, reduce heat loss, and improve energy efficiency. By choosing SIPs, you are making a positive impact on the environment and contributing to a greener future.

Q: How do SIPs compare to traditional building materials?

SIPs outperform traditional materials in terms of thermal efficiency, construction speed, space utilization, and overall energy savings. They offer an innovative and sustainable solution for modern garden buildings.

Q: Can SIPs be used for various types of garden buildings?

Absolutely! SIPs are versatile and can be used for garden offices, studios, gyms, guest rooms, and more. Their adaptability and efficiency make them a perfect choice for a wide range of garden spaces.
