Why Are Precision Shop and Ag Buildings Best Built With SIPs?

Posted by Roberta Bartel on October 21, 2020

Agriculture is a unique segment of the construction market, largely due to the varied functions of the structures found on ranches and farms. The need for storage (equipment, livestock, planes, recreational vehicles), office space, shops, and perhaps living quarters means a variety of demands for the operation's buildings. 

Year-round comfort without breaking the bank

The solid foam-core insulation of SIPs will make your building extremely tight and more comfortable throughout the year. Imagine working on your machinery, equipment, or vehicles in the warmth of a draft-free, climate-controlled environment for a fraction of the cost you would need to heat and cool a pole barn.

Wider spans

New truss systems, like the low profile Starwood Rafters, shown here, allow you to clear span up to 72' without losing ceiling height or adding posts in the work area. So, no matter the color of your machinery, it will fit nicely in your new Enercept SIP machine shop.

Also, check with your accountant. You may qualify for some tax write-offs (see section 179 of the IRS code) for new ag buildings.


Since each panel is manufactured to your specifications, there are many possibilities - the versatility of SIP construction means your design options are endless. Whether you're considering a simple storage shed, an intricately-designed showpiece, or even renovating a historical barn, Enercept SIPs are a terrific choice.
