There are ten strategic competencies that Amerisips has built that directly address and conquer the fufll sweep of the built in inefficiences and entanglements in the construction industry. As a comprehensive ‘end-to-end’ solution, these competencies create ‘A Better Way’ for every home and building owner. The following is an abbreviated version, however, the full version will be available for download in a pdf format.
- A Customer Driven Company – The Amerisips’ management team, and organization, has decades of consumer product experience.Amerisips’ focused effort to untangle the hellish maze of bad practices, processes and excesses in the construction market began with creating the right products and services, while building the right relationships with the right customers. That is the Better Way.
- Proactive Design – “The end in mind” – There is substantially more to a high performance building than a beautiful exterior and excellent floor plan, yet the traditional residential architectural and design process employed for decades in the construction world has created a reactive arena for all the critical material and system choices and integration that are forced to fit within the initial design. The better approach Amerisips has executed is to exploit the talents of their in-house architectural and design team to proactively create total building integration with the client’s needs, project budget with optimal building performance in mind. And there is an added bonus for Amerisips customers – architectural and design fees are included in the overall construction budget at dramatically lower rates – saving them even more money.
- Low Cost Producer and Quality Leader – Amerisips’ innovative business model was designed at the outset to become the “quality leader” and the “low cost producer” in the light commercial and residential market segments for designing and building high performance structures. Amerisips accomplishes this powerful union of low cost and hgh quality by bringing together their optimized in-house building design witht he global leader in building systems manufacturing, German manufacturer Hundegger, with their state-of-the-art CNC – Computer Numerical Control equipment. The Amerisips design and build process meets the highest quality standards, while at the same time, delivering the lowest cost of building systems and production labor in the marketplace.
- Green Building Systems – The cornerstone of the Amerisips building systems strategy and green building capability is the manufacture, fabrication and assembly of Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS) for the building envelope or “shell”. SIPS has been in use for over 80 years and delivers high levels of benefit in multiple areas:
- Building owners can expect signiificant energy savings over traditional “stick built” buildings – ranging from a 50 to 80 percent reduction in energy consumption.
- A typical SIPS house can be framed in 3-5 days and construction can be completed in as few as 70 days.
- Indoor air quality is consistently superior through the management of a tight building envelope and application of state-of-the-art HVAC and clean air filtration systems.
- Structures can be engineered to withstand winds up to 200 mph without significant added costs.
- SIPS manufacturing and field assembly produce very little construction waste, reducing disposal costs and minimizing impact on landfills.
- Shades of Green Plus Blue – Today’s buildings have become increasingly complex with more advanced HVAC systems, ENERGY STAR appliances, lighting and controls, plumbing and intelligent electrical systems that are often installed independently with little consideration for their impact on other building systems or worse, the building occupants. Amerisips has engineered and optimized building systems performance by focusing on a comprehensive “green plus blue” systems approach that integrates all systems for each unique building.
- Hybrid Energy Systems deliver Net-Zero “Free” Energy – Amerisips’ green building strategy starts with an optimized design and building shell then weaves those together with a best of breed energy savings and energy renewable ‘green’ system, such as solar and geothermal, with the ‘blue’ clean iar environmental system options. By capitalizing on the high R-value (up to R-45) performance of structured insulated panels, Amerisips creates an immediate energy savings benefit of 50 percent and from that, performance foundation will engineer the the selected Hybrid Energy System options to create the holy grail of building performance – a “free energy living” structure.
