The Prefab Sprout Building System is based on the Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) incorporating a steel frame which enhances the structural integrity of the system. The steel frame is designed in accordance with the requirements of SANS 517. The composite wall panels comprise 10mm autoclaved magnesium oxide or 9 mm Nutek cellulose fibre cement boards encapsulating polyurethane core and polystyrene blanks between panel cavities. The walls are finished with armour coat waterproof paint. Where required, the panels are delivered on site with factory fitted window and door frames.
The foundation and floor slab are conventional and are always the responsibility of a competent person. The roof is constructed of standard lightweight steel trusses clad with metal sheeting, concrete roof tiles or Agrément approved cladding. The plumbing and electrical conduits are pre-fixed into the composite panels.
