we are using SIPs in construction at Legacy Farm cohousing in Rosendale, NY. I don't know any technical details, but you might check with our architect, Bruce Coldham..

A slightly different form of "modular" construction is construction from structurally insulated panels (SIPs). You can find references here<http://www.sips.org/content/technical/index.cfm?pageId=134>. Have any communities used or are any communities planning to use SIPs in their structures. It would seem to have many advantages (well insulated,rapid construction, precision and accuracy, sound attenuation) and at leastone disadvantage (formaldehyde emissions). I suspect if you do a single structure, the costs might be high. However, if there are multiple similar buildings, as we anticipate in our community (planning stages), maybe thatwould make it more practical. Would appreciate any clarification/experiencemembers of this listserv might have.
