How do Plumbing and Electrical integrate with SIPs?
While there are some specific techniques that your subcontractors will need to become familiar with, building with SIPs will not create a significant roadblock in your construction. Traditionally, very little plumbing is included in exterior walls regardless of the building style used, and with SIPs most plumbing is located in the interior walls. Electrical chases are manufactured into our panels at 16″ and 45″ above the floor and every 4 feet on center vertically in the walls. Special chases can also be installed into our panels to accommodate low voltage wiring. Wiring is simply pulled through the chases after the panels have been installed.
