Nieuwenhuis Bouw, a Netherlands-based property builder and maintenance company, has specified a SIPs solution from Hemsec for its Grafhorst project. 

grafhorst-06The Grafhorst project is a ‘floating home’ residential scheme in the Netherlands. Made up of several 12 metre high, three storey houses, Nieuwenhuis Bouw contacted Inno-Bouw for a SIPs solution for the five remaining buildings on the project.

Inno-Bouw requested a bespoke solution from Hemsec, made possible due to the company’s new fabricating machinery including a large format saw and spindle moulder, comprising a variety of custom-sized 152mm thick SIPS panels, including 39mm rebates to accept standardised C24 structural timbers. 

Over 800 metres squared of SIPs were delivered and installed on site. Hemsec SIPs are fully approved by the BBA for domestic applications up to three storeys high.
