Julkowski Senior Living Cottage
St. Cloud, MN
The building will be used a sustainable, high-performance assisted living residence for senior citizens in central MN.
The builders are fans of SIP-technology and wanted to support a local manufacturer in Extreme Panel Technologies. As this is an assisted living residence for senior citizens, SIPs were chosen as the building method to ensure structural integrity, indoor air quality, and energy-efficiency for end-users.
"Continuous insulation and air-tight quality of SIPs created an energy-efficient, quiet project that enables electrification and decarbonization with less effort. This allowed the builder to save on time and associated labor costs without compromising structural integrity. The construction costs as well as the energy savings were massive. There was also notably less onsite waste and environmental contamination."Aaron SmithEnergy & Environmental Building Alliance, EEBA
