An affordable housing project in the Caribbean relied on innovative SIPs to meet the demands of the project and local building conditions.
Innova Eco Building System received the 2016 SIPA Building Excellence Award Winner for Affordable Housing at the 14th Annual Structural Insulated Panel Association (SIPA) Building Excellence Awards in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The projects were scored on four criteria including how the use of structural insulated panels (SIPs) resulted in quantifiable energy efficiency; design and structural engineering innovation; creative use of SIP construction; and overall environmental sustainability.
The winning submission in the Affordable Housing category is the St. Croix Sugar Mills Villas project for the Housing Authority, 34 homes and club house project, submitted by Innova Eco Building System, manufactures of the Innovative Magnesium Oxide SIPs (MGO) system which is at the heart of the project’s success. The project was Constructed by Burke Construction Group.
