The Cape Fear Green Building Alliance is pleased to provide a great opportunity for those in the design and construction industry, as well as homeowners, to see a home being constructed of “Structural Insulated Panels – SIP”. This will be of particular interest to architects, contractors, subcontractors, structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers.
SIP is an economical way to achieve higher energy efficiency, reduce waste on building sites, build a stronger home, create a tighter envelope for a home all while benefiting from rebates and tax credits, among other things.
The framing will be about 70% complete so it is the perfect time to see this process first hand at an easily accessible and convenient location.
We are offering a lunch hour (BYOL) on-site discussion at the home of Dick and Janet Jones on Whiskey Creek from 12 PM to 1 PM, Friday, 15 February. The home is at the end of Lauralis Bluff Court about half way down Trail’s End Road off Masonboro Loop Road. Parking is along the street on the way to the cul-de-sac.
Jay DeChesere, Architect will give a very quick overview of the home followed by a presentation by Joe Fortier of Acme Panel in Virginia.
Joe will cover the following:
• Benefits of building with SIP’s
• Issues with SIP’s
• Why SIP’s make sense in the Cape Fear Region
• Economics of SIP/Carbon
• How the process works
Bill Christopher of Christopher Building Company will follow this by actually putting some panels together during and after the talk.
Questions are encouraged during and at the conclusion of the presentation.
A donation of $10 to the Cape Fear Green Building Alliance is requested for this event.
Please register at www.cfgba.org. Payment can be made there or onsite.
This is part of CFGBA’s continuing efforts to inform the public and the building industry of green building methods that make sense!
