SIPs have standard horizontal chases pre-cut at 16" and 45" above the floor and Approximately every 4 feet on center vertically in the walls. Special chases can also be installed into our panels to accommodate low voltage wiring. For quick chase access, simply drill access holes through the top and bottom plates so your electrician will not have to drill into studs (like other dimensional lumber framing techniques).

Installing a plumbing system in a SIPs structure is a simple process for plumbing professionals. Structural Insulated Panels structures are pre-insulated with rigid foam, so plumbing systems are installed primarily in interior walls. Not much of an adjustment from other stick-frame plumbing system installations.
SIPs structures have greater insulating properties and less air infiltration, allowing homes to hold heat and cold much better than other stick-frame-lumber-structures. In fact, structures made with Roof, Wall & Floor SIPs regularly require smaller HVAC systems because the structures are much more energy efficient.
