Here at the midfield we are always looking for new and great ideas, usually on kickstarter, but this guy invested his own blood sweat and tears into making his idea a reality and he’s already started throwing these up in London.Who better to put into words what the business is about than Modular themselves, here’s an extract from their site!
Modular Sips Our manufacturing company was formed to offer new innovative products using the fantastic SIP panel system. Our Directors have a wealth of knowledge in the construction, Landscaping and Timber Products Manufacture sectors. We have combined our experiences to design a system which is truly unique and have introduced it to many sectors in the UK. Predominately the sips system is used to build houses, initially in America and Europe since the 1930’s, but is becoming the Architects and contractors preferred method of building here in the UK.
Modular Sips have taken this system and engineered it to produce high insulated, structurally efficient buildings and introduced it to many sectors. It enables us to offer the buildings of the future, with cutting edge design, long building life spans and a thermally efficient shell. We have introduced this system for Garden Rooms, to Modular Garages, sip building kits, the next generation of lodges and park homes, the storage market, eliminating condensation and introducing stylish looks, to modular portable commercial buildings which no longer look like steel boxes. Modular Sips are the first SIP manufacturer to offer such a diverse range of products, all of which have been designed and manufactured from our sites in the Ribble Valley and Blackburn, both in Lancashire. Modular Sips set out to create a true Sip Kit, that companies and individuals can construct with ease, and produce buildings with style. We then expanded this concept by designing a Cladding system which can be used to easily clad both the exterior and interior of the kit, using industry leading products and designs which offer guarantees of up to 50 years. We are not aware of any other sip manufacturer that offer these products. We then combined all the accessories you will need to construct your buildings, from windows and doors, roof coverings, to artificial grass and composite Decking. All can be purchased from one manufacturer, in one kit, delivered direct to the customer. Modular sips offer a diverse range of buildings and kits which are ready to buy in a standard kit, or a full bespoke, cad drawn service to create those one off spaces.
Having seen first hand their products i can safely say that its only a matter of time before word gets out and the prices shoot up but we here at the midfield want to bring these ideas to our readers to snap up these bargains before they get a year long work backlog. These look great in your garden especially when you don’t have enough space to start a big extension. So get onto these guys and start sniffing around their products, and if you really want to snap up a bargain, buy their sip kit and instal it yourself! Eureka! Look at these benefits of using sips!

Superior energy efficiency With U-values as low as 0.10 W/m²•K save energy and reduce running costs.
Minimising cold bridging The Y-value is a measure of the total heat loss expected from all of the thermal bridge losses in all of the junctions in the building. The SIPs system has a typical Y-value of 0.025 W/m².K exceeding the accredited and enhanced construction details values of 0.08 and 0.04 W/m².K respectively.3. Speed of build The rapid assembly made possible by the large format SIPS system reduces build time and lowers construction cost
Strong air tightness performance Minimal panel joints by virtue of the large format panels combined with the exacting panel tolerances of ±2mm
Fewer post construction defects The structural integrity of the SIP system eliminates settlement after building completion, reducing the time required for post-construction snagging
Low environmental impact Because reduced energy means reduced emissions, SIP s contributes positively to the environment by helping to lower CO2 levels, all the materials used in manufacture and construction are sustainable and recyclable.
