Nordic SIPs Now Distributing Premier Building Systems Structural Insulated Panels in Northwestern Colorado

Steamboat Springs, CO., April 13, 2009Premier Building Systems, North America’s largest manufacturer of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), announces Nordic SIPs as its new distributor for the Northwestern Colorado territory. Structural Insulated Panels are large, pre-made wall, roof or floor sections using high-strength wood panels sandwiching a rigid insulating foam core. They replace the wall studs and fiberglass rolls or blown-in insulation architects and contractors typically use in homes and buildings, and provide a stronger, healthier and more energy efficient structure.

“I am very excited to be able to offer such a great product and personalized service to the building community of Steamboat Springs and surrounding areas”, says Eric Simonsen, owner of Nordic SIPs. “More and more people are discovering Premier SIPs to be an incredible framing alternative to traditional dimensional lumber. Builders are saving time and money. Architects are gaining design flexibility and environmental product benefits, and homeowners are receiving better structures with reduced utility costs.”

Through the initial design process to the finished structure, Nordic SIPs offers the additional benefit of personalized, on-site service and consultation. The company offers in-house shop drawing capability and provides an expedited review process through meetings with homeowners and design professionals.

The benefits of SIPs include:

  • Reduce heating/cooling costs up to 60%
  • Decrease jobsite framing lumber waste up to 60%
  • Provide a quiet and comfortable interior environment
  • Improve indoor air quality by reducing penetration of airborne pollutants (odors, molds, bacteria)
  • Allow for stronger structures than traditional framing methods
