SIP Build UK, the country’s leading structural insulated panel contractor, is investing a six figure sum in the creation of a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Wakefield and creating a number of jobs following a record year and growing demand for modern methods of construction from the public and private sector.

The BOPAS accredited contractor that manufactures and constructs buildings made from Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) will opened its 11,500 sq ft. manufacturing plant at Normanton Industrial Estate last month.

Over the last year the firm has secured unprecedented contract wins for new SIPs buildings and the move will also result in a number of new roles and apprenticeships being created by the Normanton-based firm.

Managing director of SIP Build UK, Chris Duckworth says: “The ever increasing demand for off-site manufactured systems has completely transformed the construction landscape. Over the last six months we’ve doubled our production of SIPs and secured significant contract wins – a trend which sees no sign of slowing”.

“The investment we’re making in our newest manufacturing plant and the creation of a number of new roles underpins our ambitions for further growth.”

The West-Yorkshire-based business has more than 20 years’ experience working in construction and is keen to drive forward quality improvements within the building industry.
