Arizona Passive House
The Passive House is the World's Most Rigorous Standard for Energy Efficient Construction
Structural Insulated Panels, or SIPs, provide a more comfortable home, are more energy efficient, and use construction materials that are more environmentally sustainable than traditional building construction. SIP’s virtually eliminate guesswork and waste. This makes any job done using our system much more desirable and efficient for everyone involved. With a class I fire rating, the panels provide maximum protection against fire damage. The airtight precision panels eliminate gaps that can weather and lead to mold in the home.
