Build with SIMS

BUILD WITH EASE, BUILD WITH SPEED, BUILD WITH CONSCIENCE

BUILD WITH EASE...

  • Straightforward construction method which utilises the simplicity of single leaf construction whilst enhancing the thermal performance and weathertightness of the building

  • Less labour intensive build: lighter blocks, half blockwork required

  • Easier project management with SIMS supply and fit package for Developers and Contractors

  • Complete support from Technical by Quinn team

BUILD WITH SPEED...

  • Up to 60% faster than traditional cavity wall construction & comparable with timber frame

  • 50% less blocks to build

  • 20% quicker build method if using thin joint mortar

  • No wall ties, DPCs or insulation to slow the block layer down

  • No outer leaf to be constructed

  • Less labour intensive build: lighter blocks, half blockwork required

  • Easier project management with SIMS supply and fit package for Developers and Contractors

  • Complete support from Technical by Quinn team

BUILD WITH CONSCIENCE...

  • A more sustainable, modern method of construction whilst utilising traditional skill set

  • The finished building has lower energy consumption with lower carbon emissions, resulting in less environmental impact

  • SIMS can easily achieve stringent regulatory requirements which demand superior performance in relation to energy consumption, such as nZEB or passive house standards

  • Quinn Lite blocks are made from up to 80% recycled materials

  • Quinn Lite are among the first products in Ireland to have published Environmental Performance Declarations (EPDs)

  • Quinn Lite blocks are manufactured using locally and responsibly sourced raw materials

Build for LIFE

BUILD FOR LIVING, BUILD FOR PERFORMANCE, BUILD FOR THE FUTURE

BUILD FOR LIVING...

  • Far superior comfort levels with a super insulated home

  • No drafts

  • No damp / mould, so healthier living environment

  • Long term energy savings

  • More economical to run with reduced heating costs

  • Quinn Lite blocks have optimal thermal mass to ensure internal comfort. So the occupant enjoys a more rapid response to heating than heavier forms of construction, whilst ensuring the internal temperature is better regulated by reducing the risk of overheating in hotter weather and rapid cooling at night.

BUILD FOR PERFORMANCE...

  • Thermal performance: Heat loss through breaks in insulation reduced by up to 80%

  • Structural performance: Almost 3x stronger than traditional cavity wall construction when built using thin joint mortar

  • Fire performance: 4 hours fire resistance versus 30 minutes for timber frame and 2 hours for traditional cavity wall construction

  • Enhanced weather tightness, improving energy efficiency, eliminating drafts and improving durability by protecting the masonry wall structure

  • Zero condensation risk, eliminating damp and mould

BUILD FOR THE FUTURE...

  • The homeowner can enjoy lifelong comfort and savings

  • SIMS’ superior structural and thermal performance results in a home which is a long-term investment for any new homeowner

  • The combination of high-performance construction elements ensures SIMS houses can easily meet and exceed stringent regulatory requirements, such as nZEB, which focus on the long-term energy efficiency of the dwelling. It is a construction method which makes it easy to go beyond current standards to achieve passive house or energy neutral building standards.

  • Enjoy a more sustainable home, with reduced environmental impact thanks to the lower energy consumption and carbon emissions. Quinn Lite blocks are also made from up to 80% recycled materials, using locally and responsibly sourced raw materials.
