Modular Homes

What are Sips?

What are SIPS?

SIPS are lightweight composite panels, the internal and external cladding are bonded to the insulated core to create a thermally efficient and robust envelope to the home. We’ve developed this system so you now have finish options for your home, both internally and externally.

SIPS permit rapidly installation, replacing several traditional elements of: Framing, cladding, lining and insulation. When combined with improved performance the benefits are obvious and remarkable.
History of Sips

History of SIPS

SIPS aren't new, having being utilised for decades thoughtout Europe and North America to tackle cold environments. Only recently has the system been adopted to exploit its beneficial properties to tackle hot environments such as those common to Western Australia.

Now with the use of “infinite element engineering analysis” the system is being utilised here to create envelopes that are both structurally sound and efficient in protecting against our extreme climate.
Emergence of Sips

History of SIPS

Over the past few years, modular home systems similar to those of North American have emerged in Australia. Until now there has been no deviation to utilise our commonly available facing materials. SipForm gives you a host of finishes to ensure you aren’t limited in choice.

Now with these multiple options for external cladding and internal lining, and the variants available through those suppliers, Architects and owners can finish their creations to complement their shared vision.

Let’s take a look

Simplicity in construction is at the core of your SipForm home. Speed, strength and efficiency is what sets it apart from common, yet far less efficient traditional methods.

SIPS utilise the rigidity of the bonded, precision engineered panel in combination with the high tensile jointing to create an extremely robust envelope to the home.
1. Insulated EPS core for internal comfort
2. Pre-profiled service conduits
3. High strength bonded outer shell
4. Numerous Architectural cladding options
5. FRP framing for a cyclone proof shell

What is EPS

What is EPS?

Expanded Polystyrene is a light weight closed cell synthetic with remarkable insulating properties and high structural integrity. EPS is widely used in the building industry for these physical properties and resistance to pests.

Combining this rigid insulation material with the structural properties of the cladding results in a light weight high performance panel with incredible integrity. 
Eco Friendly Homes

Going Green

Its obvious Australians are making a shift toward more affordable, efficient and environmentally responsible living. The old ideology of the brick & tile home is being traded for a truly Architectural aesthetic and better performance.

SipForm suits this emergent light weight, low impact aesthetic. Homes utilising this method prove to be of higher efficiency whilst remaining truly affordable. 
Sips Power Modular Homes

Here to Stay

Through research, development and testing by our Engineering partners, coupled with our aim to utilise local products, means SipForm is proving to be at the cutting edge of this emergent and efficient construction revolution.

The demand for fast and affordable methods, better suited to this emergent style, gives us greater appreciation of such technologies in new home construction.. 

Modular Home FAQ's

How different is modular building to more traditional forms of construction?

The entire structure is built in panels in our factory which are sent directly to your site ready for assembly.  The floor, the walls, and the roof are all built off-site to millimetre accuracy and houses can be assembled within days and weeks rather than months and years.

Are modular homes cheaper than brick and mortar?

Generally, yes, by about 10 – 20%.  The savings come in the shortened time to build where you can save on holding costs.

Are modular homes of a higher quality than
conventional homes?

Absolutely. Homes built with Structural Insulated Panels are high performance structures.  They are more efficient and more effective in providing you a comfortable home.

Do modular homes all look like mining dongas?

Absolutely not.  Think of modular homes as structures that just use bigger, better bricks.  Anything that a brick can build, a panel can build better.  Our building partner, FORM Homes, are a boutique builder with architectural services to bring any dream home to reality. We have the modular homes Perth has been waiting for!

What are the benefits of modular building over
brick and mortar?

All panels are quality controlled and precisely built.  No uneven walls, no gaps, only clean cut edges.  By having panels only delivered when required, theft in building sites is dramatically reduced and homes are built quicker and cheaper.

How long does a modular home take to build?

Homes can be built in as little as 12 weeks compared to brick and mortar which typically takes 9 – 12 months.

Can panels be used on commercial buildings?

Yes. Our building partner, FORM Construction specialises in using our panels in commercial settings.

Are there any size limitations?

No. Modular homes can be small 30sqm granny flats or they can be industrial sized warehouses.  We haven’t tried a skyscraper yet but they’ll be on the way!
