What are Polyurethane Panels and what are the Financial Benefits of SIPs
Cost comparisons have shown that building with polyurethane panels is no more expensive than traditional building techniques when the following factors are taken into consideration:
REDUCED COST OF LAND
A polyurethane panels roof structure does not require roof trusses and will provide an open habitable warm room in the roof, allowing a three bedroom house to be turned into a five bedroom house on the same size lot.
REDUCED COST OF FOUNDATION
A polyurethane panel structure is a lightweight shell and therefore does not require a heavy foundation design.
REDUCED COST OF LOSS THROUGH DAMAGE OR THEFT
The elements which make up a polyurethane panels SIPs structure are generally very large and robust and are therefore inherently unlikely to be damaged or stolen from the jobsite. A significant percentage of traditional building materials are either lost, damaged or stolen from jobsites. The speed of build and the nature of polyurethane panels virtually eliminates this problem.
REDUCED COST OF LABOR
A polyurethane panels structure simplifies the process of construction and can reduce construction time by up to 60%. Once the foundations have been completed, a Greenix Panels pre-engineered structure arrives at the jobsite and within 2 to 4 weeks can have a weather-tight structural shell ready for windows, doors, services and internal and external finishes. The nature of polyurethane panels SIPs provides a square, completed structure that reduces installation steps and so reduces the eventual cost of multiple inspections.
REDUCED COST OF WASTE DISPOSAL
A polyurethane panels structure is pre-engineered off-site to avoid both the additional labor and the ever increasing cost of the safe disposal of waste materials.
REDUCED JOBSITE COSTS
A faster build program will reduce the overall cost of project management, and in turn will also reduce the cost of hiring scaffolding, plant, safety and security equipment and temporary accommodations.
REDUCED HEATING COSTS
The unbeatable insulating qualities of Greenix Panels allow a much smaller heating system, combined with a mechanical ventilation system to be installed. This will permanently reduce heating bills by up to 60% over the lifetime of the building when compared with traditional methods of construction.
QUICKER RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Building a Greenix Panel structure can radically increase the speed of construction, providing a quicker return on investment. This allows the capital to be used on the next project when it would otherwise still be tied up on a traditional build. A significant gain can be made over a period of time maximizing the return on the initial investment and maintaining a positive cash flow.
BETTER RESALE VALUE
Greenix Panel houses are attractive to future buyers and occupants, due to the reduced utility costs and the many other benefits that a Greenix Panel house provides.
