Our Pods are designed and constructed to last a lifetime, providing superior performance, durability, and energy efficiency. We believe that our integrated timber and steel framework construction method is the superior solution for building rooms that are both beautiful and practical.
Aside from our extraordinary design, we are also invested in creating buildings that are built to last. Choosing the right construction method is crucial, and while it may not be the most exciting part of choosing a new Pod, it is absolutely one of the most important considerations. Most studios are made from SIPS panel construction, but we believe that an integrated timber and steel framework construction provides a superior solution. We thought it might be helpful to understand the difference.
SIPS panel construction is a building method that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves sandwiching a foam core between two structural skins, typically made from oriented strand board (OSB) or plywood. While this method may seem appealing due to its ease of use and low cost, we believe that it's an inferior mode of construction when compared to our integrated timber or steel framework method.
Here are some reasons why SIPS panel construction is inferior:
Inaccuracy: SIPS panels are inherently inaccurate from a construction point of view, making it difficult to achieve a good detail of finish. In contrast, we construct every one of our panels to accurate architectural construction details on a project by project basis, ensuring that each building is tailored to the customer's specific needs.
Limited insulation: While SIPS panels do provide insulation, they don't achieve anywhere near the same levels of thermal and acoustic insulation that our buildings do. Our buildings are constructed with very high levels of insulation, which not only provides greater energy efficiency but also improves the overall comfort of the space.
Insect infestation: SIPS panels are also susceptible to longer-term issues with insect infestation, which can compromise the integrity of the structure over time. In contrast, our buildings are constructed with water and fireproof outer layers on each of our panels, ensuring that they're built to last.
Accuracy: At Pod Space, we construct every one of our panels to accurate architectural construction details on a project-by-project basis, ensuring that each building is tailored to the customer's specific needs. This level of accuracy also ensures that our buildings have a high level of detail and finish, which is essential for creating a beautiful and practical space.
Insulation: Our buildings are constructed with very high levels of insulation, providing greater energy efficiency and improving the overall comfort of the space. Unlike SIPS panel construction, our buildings achieve superior levels of thermal and acoustic insulation, ensuring that you'll be comfortable in your garden pod no matter the weather outside.
Durability: Our buildings are designed and constructed to last a lifetime, providing superior performance and durability. We use high-quality components throughout the build, ensuring that our buildings are built to last. This applies to the integrated components that you wouldn't see, which are important to the overall quality and longevity of the building.
Flexibility: Our integrated timber or steel framework construction method provides a great deal of flexibility when it comes to design. We can work with you to design a building that meets your specific needs and requirements, ensuring that you get the exact structure you need.
Energy efficiency: Our buildings are designed to be energy-efficient, using sustainable materials and construction methods to minimise our environmental impact. By using high-quality insulation and other components, we're able to ensure that our buildings are as energy-efficient as possible, resulting in significant cost savings over time.
Exceptional customer service: At Pod Space, we understand that building a new structure is a significant investment, and we're committed to providing our customers with exceptional service and support throughout the process.
From the initial design stage to the final construction and beyond, our team of experts is here to support our customers and ensure that they're completely satisfied with the end product. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and dedication to customer satisfaction.
Eco-friendly: Finally, we believe that sustainability and eco-friendliness are essential considerations when it comes to building a new structure.
Our buildings are designed to minimise our environmental impact, using sustainable materials and construction methods wherever possible. We're committed to ensuring that our garden pods are both beautiful and environmentally responsible.
