Warren French was awarded a study trip to Europe and visited Baufritz ( in Germany. He saw the need for Australians to be building as the Germans have been doing since the 1960’s, using pre-fabrication and Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) due to the improved sustainability and reduced environmental impacts of the SIP product and manufacturing, faster construction times, greater efficiency and less waste, improved quality control, greater OH and S for workers. To get to this point has been almost 10 years in the making. 10 years of perseverance and dedication to improving how we build and design our houses in Australia.

In Australia in 2018.

Universities and politicians are now realizing the benefits of building houses with SIPs the way 12-15% of Japanese homes and 50-90% of Swedish homes are built.
