Built To Exceed Your Expectations

Your new home here at The Hawthorns has been built utilising SIPs construction from multi award winning manufacturer SIPs Industries. SIPs Industries was established in 2000 with the aim of providing a complete SIPs manufacture and installation service to the building industry. They are now the longest established specialist SIPs company in the UK. SIPs construction delivers unrivalled insulation and air tightness, which reduces energy costs over the building’s lifetime. A SIPs home has minimal thermal bridging and delivers excellent air tightness, ensuring fewer drafts, lower noise pollution, materially lower energy bills and are overall more energy efficient than other forms of home construction.

In addition to lower energy bills, SIPs homes positively impact on the environment with lower CO2 emissions due to the reduction in heat loss and manufacturing wastage. SIPs homes are precision engineered and formed with a timber OSB board and EPS insulation, laminated together to produce an incredibly strong and rigid building structure. This inherent strength allows the homes to enjoy large open plan and vaulted spaces, free of additional structure or support such as trusses. These feature areas provide a feeling of space, grandeur and opulence, adding character to the homes. The air tight homes are fitted with a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system (MVHR) ensuring the air quality is constantly optimised in each home.

Habitable rooms are provided with pre- warmed fresh air and kitchens and bathrooms are extracted on a continual basis. Heat is extracted from the air removed from the building and used to pre heat the fresh air entering the building. The extracted air helps to remove germs, odours, stale air, pollens, pathogens, CO2 build ups and with a constant supply of fresh air the home living and sleeping environments are optimised. SIPs homes set new standards in home living and the environmentally friendly, low energy, thermal efficient, air tight homes will positively impact on your living conditions and the environmental carbon footprint. Add the benefits of living in Scotland’s National Park, with superb architectural design and the blended combination of modern and traditional materials, will enable you to enjoy life to the full.
