Building Green with SIPs

Green Building Programs

The selection of R-Control SIPs for your building makes it easy to comply with various national green building programs.


The U.S. Green Building Council developed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ to promote green buildings. The LEED system provides a yardstick for measuring the environmental impact of buildings. “Certified”, “Bronze”, “Silver”, and “Platinum” levels can be achieved based upon a point system. R-Control SIPs have been used in many LEED buildings, including buildings with the highest Platinum rating. For more information on the LEED program, please visit


The U.S. Department of Energy established the ENERGY STAR program which many consumers are aware of from their everyday purchases of electronics and appliances. The ENERGY STAR program also provides a method for ENERGY STAR rating a structure. R-Control SIPs are deemed to comply with the program without conducting on-site blower door testing.

NAHB Green Building

The National Association of Home Builders created a building program for use by builders to help advance green building. As part of the NAHB program, SIP panels are given points for the increased effective R-value for the building envelope. For more information on the NAHB Green Building program, please visit
