SCIP Homes are thermal mass construction buildings. SCIP panels are not SIPs or ICFs as many think. They are one of the most energy efficient building systems available. 70% energy savings are not unreasonable due to the (thermal mass) concrete on the interior side of the wall. R26 thermal mass walls can outperform traditional wood and insulation R56 walls. The panels allow for designs and spans in building not possible with traditional building systems.
