Structural Concrete Insulated Panel (SCIP) Building Technologies

SCIP technology Features and Benefits using Emmudue® brand panels from the USA 

SCIP technology has been available since the late 1960’s. Over 100,000 SCIP buildings are built all over the world with no structural failures. SCIP technology is designed with any floor plans according to your tastes and ideas.

  • SCIP does conform to all existing codes
  • SCIP homes look like conventional construction homes
  • SCIP homes are coated with fire-resistant structural cement and fire rated at 1 to 4 hours
  • SCIP contains internally thermally insulated with Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS)
  • SCIP homes are thermally efficient with Low Heating and cooling costs
  • SCIP technology has very low maintenance costs
  • SCIP panel homes are very quiet to live in
  • All standard architectural finish materials work well with SCIP technology
  • All rough-in standard construction materials work well with SCIP technology
  • SCIP panels are built without forms
  • In California, SCIP Technology can economically compete with wood construction
  • SCIP technology can be used in residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings


SCIP technology Hazard Resistances

  • Fire resistance of the exteriors and interiors of homes
  • Earthquake Resistant when engineered correctly
  • Hurricane Resistant when engineered correctly
  • Tornado Resistant with double panel structures when engineered correctly
  • Termite Resistant
  • Mold Resistant
  • Ballistic-shooting resistant

  • Exterior walls can be finished in any of the standard stucco finishes with color or painted
  • Brick, stone slate, marble and other exterior and interior fascia materials work well with SCIP
  • Roofs may be textured and or colored and left natural or may use any roofing materials
  • All Green energy technologies may be engineered to work well with SCIP Technology

SCIP Challenges

  • SCIP type construction has not gone mainstream in the USA
  • Many building officials are not familiar with SCIP technology
  • Most General Contractors are not familiar with SCIP technology
  • Most Home Buyers and Home Owners are not familiar with SCIP technology
