Premier Building Systems SIPs Rated Tops in Brand Preference Survey

Fife, Wash., January 31, 2011 – Building industry professionals have rated Premier Building Systems as the preferred brand of structural insulated panels (SIPs) in nationwide research conducted by Peninsula Publishing. Readers of Builder & Developer, Green Homebuilder, Residential Contractor and other magazines in the Peninsula Publishing family selected Premier as the top-rated SIPs producer in the publisher’s 2010 Brand Preference Survey.

Premier Building Systems is North America’s largest SIP producer. The company’s panels have been used in numerous traditional and cutting-edge architectural designs for homes, multi-family residences, schools, medical facilities and a host of other commercial and institutional buildings.

Premier SIPs are strong, straight and predictable for wall, roof and floor construction. The large-section panels install fast, helping reduce building cycle time and jobsite labor. They provide superior insulating values and a tight building envelope to help reduce heating and cooling energy use up to 60 percent, and help reduce jobsite waste up to two-thirds. They can also help contribute toward points in leading green building programs, including up to 46 points in LEED® for Homes and up to 39 points in LEED® for New Construction.

“We’ve worked hard to show that SIPs are the construction method of the future, especially regarding energy efficiency,” says James Hodgson, General Manager, Premier Building Systems. “This honor is a nice validation of our team’s work with architects, contractors and code officials. We’re grateful for their recognition and support.”
