On March 18th, 2008, FAS President Henry Kelly spoke on energy conservation and climate change at the Structural Insulated Panel Association (SIPA) Annual Meeting and Conference. His presentation focused on the impacts of the building industry on the realities of climate change, as well as the important potential of advanced building products like SIPs as a mitigation strategy.
FAS is working with SIPA’s Technical Committee to define technical data and expand the breadth of SIP applications. FAS is planning to use the new technical data to explore ways to use SIPs to design seismic-resistant multistory structures.
More information about the FAS’s research in SIPs can be found here. For more Information on other projects please visit the Building Technologies Program.
The Structural Insulated Panel Association is a non-profit trade association representing manufacturers, suppliers, fabricators/distributors, design professionals, and builders committed to providing quality structural insulated panels for all segments of the construction industry.
