Design without boundaries – build with reduced risk
SPT’s build system can be designed to construct virtually any style of building from very traditional to contemporary. Standardised panel sizes and connection components allow for extreme ease and flexibility of configuration. Using SPT’s SIP panels takes care of the thermal envelope of the building and allows for a wide range of finishes to be applied, including render, brick-slip, timber cladding, composite panel or even stone.
Because our panels are precision manufactured off-site, they go together quickly and accurately on-site. This means the finished building will adhere to the original dimensions planned, within a very tight tolerance. Additionally, architectural features such as complex dormers aren’t left to chance, and can be manufactured and then located on site without error.
Specify with Confidence
Because the SPT build system uses the highest quality materials and has been tested to, and accredited with, the highest European Agrement Standards, it will meet or exceed all the requirements of current and future UK Building Regulations and Building Standards.
The excellent thermal performance of SPT’s MgO SIP panels combined with the Econex component’s ability to minimise thermal bridging and maximise thermal airtightness, means that high levels of performance can be easily achieved using the SPT build system, with the risk of on-site build error, virtually eliminated.
Each building supplied by SPT Systems will have been structurally designed by our engineers, with full structural calculations provided for foundation slab design by the project architects.
Faster, easier and safer on-site build
SPT’s integrated Build System dramatically reduces construction time and labour costs. The assembly of the building structure is typically measured in days rather than weeks to months.
It is far easier to accurately predict completion times, it is relatively simple to erect and requires no wet trades or brick layers and has low wastage which allows accurate fixed costs.
External and internal follow on trades can start work sooner and the SPT integrated Build System offers a weather tight shell helping you complete faster.
Reductions in on-site work, site deliveries, heavy materials and wastage through the use of SPT’s build system all lead to improved site safety.
If you are new to SIP’s technology, we have an in house design team that are always available to support you with technical input. We can convert your existing scheme into a SIP’s design and offer input with value analysis.
Magnesium Oxide SIP’s are an incredibly strong and robust construction medium. If you need any input on the design parameters you can work to, give us a call. We work in conjunction with structural engineers that are fully conversant with our SIP’s technology.
We can provide design visuals for you scheme to any level, from basic sketch up images through to photo real ray traced images, at specified light levels etc. Call for more details.
As well as housing applications, SIP’s are perfectly suited to all manner of commercial applications, in retail, accommodation and industrial. Within our group of companies are divisions that can support “Big Build” projects.
