Our Proven Process

the life of a project:

Planning ... it's one of the most important steps to your building project.

Once you’ve decided on the perfect plans, the drafters at Enercept will work with you on a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) layout that works. Your project will be drawn and panelized with one of the most state-of-the-art drafting programs available.

With Enercept, your SIPs will be custom made to meet your construction drawing specifications. Our skilled drafters give you the one-on-one attention you deserve throughout the process.

Using your floor plan, the Enercept drafting department will calculate and design the panelized layout for your exterior shell. Fine details, unique shapes and irregular openings are not a problem.

The Process


Getting an Estimate

  1. Contact your local dealer and/or Regional Sales Manager (RSM) to discuss the benefits of the Enercept building system.
  2. Send your plan to your Enercept dealer or your Enercept RSM.
  3. Enercept will review your plan and generate a FREE estimate.
  4. The estimate will be sent to you via email.
  5. Your Enercept contact during this step is your Enercept RSM.


  1. Review your estimate. If you have any questions or if revisions are required, please contact your dealer or RSM.
  2. Once you are satisfied the estimate is correct based on your requirements, an initial down payment is required to proceed with the Enercept SIP layout approval drawing process. If shop drawing engineering is required, the amount of the required down payment will include the shop drawing engineering fee, which is determined on a per project basis. The initial down payment, and engineering down payment can be in the form of a check or credit card. The down payments will be credited to the final cost of your project and reflected on your final invoice.

  1. Your project will be assigned to an Enercept drafter who will work with you to generate approval drawings for your project from
    your Construction Drawings. If you do not have or know what Construction Drawings are, contact your Enercept RSM.
  2. You must review and verify your Enercept SIP layout drawings and comment on them, as necessary.
  3. You are encouraged to contact your drafter about questions during the layout drawing creation process.
  4. When shop drawing engineering is required, the Enercept SIP layout approval drawings will have the shop drawing engineering information, incorporated into them.
  5. Sign, date, and return your revised Enercept SIP layout drawings.

  1. A proposal will be generated based on the signed Enercept SIP layout approval drawings and sent to you for review.
  2. Review, sign, date, and return the final proposal and builder acknowledgment to Enercept with the required production down payment in the form of a check or wire transfer. The production down payment amount will be noted on the proposal.
  3. Indicate your final payment option on the proposal. Final payment is due prior to scheduling of final shipment.
  4. Once the proposal is signed and accepted by you, changes to the project will require a change order which may result in
    additional costs to you. Enercept will initiate the change order document. The change order will be forwarded to you for review
    and your signature of acceptance. If additional costs are associated with the change order, they will be delineated on the
    change order.

Upon receipt of the production down payment, signed proposal, signed Enercept SIP layout approval drawings, and builder acknowledgement (BA) form, your project will be placed in the production schedule. If there is a production slot available to match your requested delivery date (per the builder acknowledgment form) it will be placed in the schedule accordingly. If the schedule is full for the time requested, the project will be added to the next available production opening. Once your project is in the production schedule, Enercept’s Production Scheduler will contact you and regularly update you on the status and projected schedule.
  2. A final invoice will be generated and sent to you.
  3. The panels will be produced, and a shipment date scheduled.
