“Building with SIPs is not only a superior way of building for contractors and investors, the building method is also more earth-friendly and energy-efficient than traditional stick-built.”P. Allen SmithTelevision Preservationist, Designer
“Using structural insulated panels built in a controlled environment just makes sense: It reduces waste, increases construction efficiency, and means the building shell goes up quickly.”Amy MatthewsTelevision host, general contractor
"EPT projects are a better way to build. The structures are more secure, stronger homes, are easier and quicker to put up, and enable builders to deliver projects closer to schedule and budge, while reducing the time to build.
