From the ground up

SipForm gives greater design freedom when building to sloping sites, variable bearing conditions, or where additions to an existing home might require more than one type of sub-floor construction. 

Our floor panels are the best choice for sloping or sensitive sites, where costly earthworks and retaining walls or loss of established shade trees may result from traditional slab on-ground construction. SipForm panels can be adapted to all common methods of construction, from the ground, or from the floor up.

Efficient Kit Homes | SipForm

From the ground up

Slab on Ground

Kit Homes Concrete Floor
On level sites or within inner urban areas, where slab on ground may be a preference, SipForm wall panels can be utilised to speed construction and increase the overall thermal performance and living comfort of any home.

SipForm significantly reduces build time and costs, and can be used seamlessly with traditional trussed roofs where the established housing typology adopts a common hip and valley tiled or steel sheet roof forms.

Elevated Systems

Kit Homes Flooring
Our system lends itself to all housing types and methods of construction. The system is however without parallel on sites with even moderate slope, those subject to flooding or elevated groundwater, varied bearing or where landscape features are intended to be left undisturbed.

Our integrated and insulated flooring system can be installed upon any site fast! Use of an innovative footing system reduces excavation, site disturbance and the need for concrete.

Upper Construction

Kit Homes Floor Panel
In two storey homes or second floor additions, structure may dictate the use of a conventional flooring system. SipForm floor panels can be utilised to achieve greater clear spans and reduce the flooring depth, or SipForm Quiet floor panels can be installed over any floor joist structure.

Both options improve insulation between climate controlled zones providing greater internal comfort and reduction in energy costs, better acoustics and more privacy throughout the home.

From the ceiling up

Typical Trussed Roof

Kit Homes Trussed Roof
Our wall panels can be used in conjunction with a range of conventional roofing structures. Steel or timber trusses can be anchored to the top plate using the same specified for normal framing.

This allows you to make the most of your home, using standardised trusses to meet current market demand. Where roofs are hipped and finished with roof tiles or steel sheeted, these roof types meet the common demands of the more discerning buyer.

Panels Contained

Kit Homes SIP Roof Option
If you are considering a more contemporary feel to your home and installing a parapet  around your roofing, we highly recommend our insulated panel roofing.

This insulated roofing product can be installed and fully contained within the parapet. The roofing panels can be built to almost any length and are self supporting over long spans. If looking for a flat ceiling, the underside can be fitted with depth adjusted timber battens and lined.

Panels Cantilevered

Kit Homes Roof Panel
Again, where a more contemporary feel is being considered, our insulated panel roofing can be installed to create large open spans and deep shaded awnings.

Deep shaded awnings are common to most climatic conditions. Your designer can be size these awnings to provide for full sun penetration in our cool winters and omit the penetration of the sun to any internal areas of the home during the extreme heat of our summers.

Installing footings is easy!

We use a proprietary footing system to get you up fast.

Our footing supplier devised a unique system that allows the pads to be installed without using concrete. These are capable of accepting high loads and far more resistant to uplift under cyclone conditions.
