The system can take several forms, including precast columns and beams with panelized cladding or load-bearing precast walls and double-tee or hollowcore flooring. It provides a significant number of advantages, including: Speed to Market: A precast concrete structural system can save a project six to eight weeks compared to steel and even more when compared with cast-in-place concrete, according to a survey of developers.

That savings can be critical in bringing a new building into a competitive market or to meet a tenant’s need for occupancy on a specific date. CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels.

iSPAN Project Gallery. Frequently Asked Questions on SIP Panels. Code Reports: US & Canada. Polyisocyanurate high density insulation foam. Polyisocyanurate (also known as polyiso or PIR) is essentially an improvement on polyurethane (PUR).

Polyisocyanurate high density insulation foam

The proportion of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is higher than for PUR and instead of a polyether polyol, a polyester derived polyol is used in the reaction. Catalysts and additives used in PIR formulations also differ from those used in PUR. Advantages of polyisocyanurate over polyurethane are... Higher R-value per inch of thickness Greater stiffness and dimensional stability Better compressive strength Superior performance in fire tests PIR insulation is typically produced as a foam and used as rigid thermal insulation.

Its thermal conductivity has a typical value of 0.16 BTU*in/hr*ft2*°F (0.023 W/mK). R-value The widely used "R-value" measurement simply refers to thermal "resistance value" - that is, a measure of insulation's ability to impede heat flow, thereby keeping hot or cold air outside.

The next generation of heavy timber building systems is set to change the way many Australian buildings are designed and constructed.

New WoodSolutions CLT Handbook

Overseas and in Australia, the potential advantages of heavy timber construction are creating significant interest among architects, engineers and building developers. International experts, including Eurban's Liam Dewar, Austria's Hermann Kaufmann and others have inspired Australian building design and construction professionals with case studies of multistorey residential and commercial projects. Heavy timber construction systems include: Cross-laminated timber (CLT) Expan: post-stressed frames and box beams Glulam and LVL beams, planks and floor systems. BC Wood Products and Manufacturers. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is an advanced product, developed in Switzerland in the early 1990s, designed for increased dimensional stability and strength in framing systems.

CLT is made of multiple layers of wood, with each layer oriented crosswise to the next. Used for long spans in floors, walls or roofs, CLT can be prefinished, which reduces labour onsite, and is equally suited to new construction and additions to existing buildings. Sixty°home. Canadian Forest Service : Squeezing more value from trees : A solid forest resource base. A Lighter, Stronger Building Material. By Chantal HunterFebruary 2012 Cross Laminated Timber is a well-established construction product in Europe.

A Lighter, Stronger Building Material

With the help of Natural Resources Canada, it is poised to make the jump to North America. larger imageA seven-ply cross-laminated timber panel. Photo Credit: Bill Downing, Structurlam Products Limited A market-ready forest product is looking to reduce the time and cost of construction for North American builders. CLT is made of layers of timber glued together using hydraulic or vacuum presses. “Being considerably lighter than concrete, CLT panels are easier and more economical to transport and install,” says Bob Jones, Director, Industry and Trade Division, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan).

Work is underway to update the building codes in Canada and the United States to allow CLT to compete in the residential and commercial construction material markets. Benefits for Consumers Bringing the Product to Market. Structural Insulated Panel Association. SIPs Beat ICF. Construction Executive Magazine - Features. SIPs Simplified Designing and Building with Structural Insulated Panels By James Hodgson “Advanced” frequently means “complicated,” but that’s not the case with structural insulated panels (SIPs).

Construction Executive Magazine - Features

The panels provide a way to build homes, apartments and commercial buildings faster, with higher energy efficiency and with less waste than other construction methods. Manufacturers produce SIPs by laminating wood “skins” (typically oriented strand board) with a structural-grade adhesive to a rigid insulating foam core (usually expanded polystyrene). The components work together as an engineered system, providing high-strength walls, roofs and floors. Building professionals can use SIPs to help reduce heating and cooling energy consumption up to 60 percent, reduce framing scrap by two-thirds, and shave weeks off construction schedules. Following is an overview of the benefits of SIP construction and tips for making the switch. {*style:<b>Rapid Installation. Building Science Corporation.
