SIP Build UK self build

NaCSBA member SIP Build UK has scooped a prestigious award in the brand new Making Better Homes Awards, run by national builders’ merchant Jewson. The awards recognise those creating energy-efficient, safe, and comfortable homes across the UK. SIP Build UK’s commitment to sustainability ensured SIP Build UK won in the Best Building Fabric category for its self build, Munoz House.

For the winning project SIP Build UK was commissioned to create a highly insulated and airtight envelope using Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for a self build in Colchester. The panels minimise heat transfer and energy loss through walls, providing excellent thermal performance.

The judging panel was impressed by the use of modern methods and fabric-first approach. Judge Matthew Handley said: “This high energy efficiency build is a great example of how SIPs can add value. The fabric-first method and renewables have delivered a wonderful living space.”

Ian Still, SIP Build UK National Sales Director said: “It’s fantastic to win Jewson’s Building Better Homes Award. Working closely with the homeowner from the start helped ensure this dream Passive Haus Certified SIP home was a success. Seeing the family now enjoying the benefits of their thermally efficient SIPs home makes this project even more special.

“We are immensely proud of this project, as it shows the perfect balance between energy efficiency and aesthetics. We entered the awards to showcase our dedication to quality, efficiency and sustainability in construction. This award is not just an achievement, but a responsibility to keep providing excellent sustainable solutions.”
