Can SIPs be modified on site?

At Formance, precision and accuracy is one of our core aims in the production process. Our Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are meticulously engineered and manufactured to your exact specifications, minimising the need for on-site modifications in most building projects.

However, we understand that construction sites are dynamic environments, and unforeseen circumstances can arise. The good news is that yes, SIPS can usually be modified on-site if absolutely necessary.

Our panels are made accurately based on our shop drawings, which we create from the finalised architectural drawings, and whilst this keeps onsite adjustments to a minimum, there might be situations where minor tweaks are required. In such cases, we can provide you with the necessary tools specifically designed for SIPs, like a hot knife gun that allows you to remove EPS without making a mess on site.

Before making any modifications, we recommend contacting Formance. Our team of experts can advise on the best course of action, considering the specific situation and ensuring structural integrity remains intact. 

If you are in a situation where you are modifying a pre-built Formance home please get in touch to request the original shop drawings to help understand how the building has been put together. 

By following these steps, you can ensure that any on-site modifications to your Formance SIPS are made safely and effectively.

Remember, precise planning and pre-fabrication are key advantages of building with Formance SIPS. But with the right tools and support from our expert team, minor adjustments can still be accommodated on-site if needed.
