The SCIP Building Process from Start to Finish

An Overview of the SCIP Building Process

Building a structure from scratch can be a daunting task. From planning and design to construction and
delivery, there are many steps involved. If you’re considering SCIP construction, you may be wondering
what the process entails..
SCIP stands for Structural Concrete Insulated Panel, and it is a building material that is made up of
expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation sandwiched between two layers of sprayed concrete. The panels
are custom-made to fit the specifications of each individual building, making them a versatile and
cost-effective choice for a variety of applications.

Step 1: Production of SCIP Panels

The SCIP building process starts with the production of the panels. At Vero Building Systems, our
US-based plant produces the panels using a state-of-the-art process that ensures consistent quality and
precision. The foam insulation is first cut to size and then coated with a specially formulated adhesive.
The coated foam is then caged in double-galvanized steel wire mesh for rigidity. These are custom-made
panels based on our modular system that prepares you and your team for any building needs.

Step 2: Shipping and Delivery

After the panels are produced, they are shipped to the job site. The panels are carefully loaded onto
trucks and transported to their destination. At Vero Building Systems, we take great care to ensure that
the panels arrive at the job site in perfect condition. Our team works closely with the shipping
companies to coordinate the delivery and ensure that the panels arrive on time.

Step 3: Erecting the SCIP Forms

Once the panels arrive at the job site, the SCIP forms are erected. This involves assembling the panels
into the desired configuration, which can be customized for a variety of building applications. The
modular nature of SCIP panels makes them easy to work with, and they can be assembled quickly and
efficiently. Our VERO team provides support throughout the entire process, ensuring that the forms are
erected correctly and in a timely manner.

Step 4: Shotcrete Application

After the SCIP forms are erected, the shotcrete is sprayed onto each side of the structure. This process
involves spraying the concrete into the forms and then allowing it to cure. The result is a strong, durable,
monolithic structure that can withstand the elements and provide excellent insulation. Because the
panels are pre-engineered and pre-cut, the spraying process is faster and more efficient than traditional
construction methods. We offer support and training for builders.

Step 5: Finishing the Building

Once the concrete has cured, the building is finished. This involves adding windows, doors, roofing, and
other finishing touches. Because the SCIP panels are custom-made, they can be designed to
accommodate a wide range of building features and finishes. The result is a building that is not only
strong and durable but also aesthetically pleasing.
