Your project will require less time, less funding, and less hassle and still finish with a high quality and longer lasting structure. Simply put, Polycore© systems are a faster easier, and better way to make your dream project a reality.

Feature Project SICS- 1025 – 14 unit Townhomes in Ft. Saskatchewan AB September 2017

A new client contracted SICS to work with EFG Architects of Edmonton to convert existing 3-plex and 4-plex designs of a four-building (14 unit) townhome project to use the complete Polycore© envelope from footing to roof, including the no concrete RFloor system. The project began in August 2017 with the first of four buildings erected by crew unfamiliar and new to the system but experienced in wood framing and multi-level projects.

Targeting a 100 Year Lifespan

Polycore© systems use structural and insulation elements known and proven for over six decades, combining them with a new approach to enhance and intensify their properties.

Garret B.

“I choose the SIC Foundation wall product for two main reasons. The first is the high R-value ‘out of the box’ without any additional insulation installation required, and the second is the ease with which the product can be installed. Because there is no concrete, it was easy for myself (handy but no means experienced) to install the product with the help of one additional person.

The product was easy to install instructions were clear and precise and the final results look great. Will recommend this product, and would use it again.

“We were looking to build an energy efficient modern open concept house on small river valley lot in Rossdale during winter time when we came across the SIC System. The use of the SIC walls made sense and the price was on par with other systems we were looking at. Mark was a pleasure to work with and addressed any of our concerns and questions. My contractor hired framers to put up the system and they found that it was quite logical to work with.  The house we built was not your typical A frame or box house but any issues that we had, Mark was on site to help us work it out.

We would definitely consider using the product again in the future and would definitely recommend the system to anyone looking for an alternative to traditional stick builds. “

“We decided on SIC flooring system because of the competitive cost and the great R-value it provides. I personally installed the flooring system with Mark and found it to be very easy. A 950 square foot basement was complete in half a day.

I’m a big fan of the final product since my basement floor doesn’t feel like a typical basement. Much less heat is lost compared to a concrete basement floor and therefore makes the space feel no different than any other room in the house. I would definitely use this product again and recommend it to others. “

Expanded Polystyrene is Everywhere

And it should be. But hear me out before you send the hate mail. You'll likely think I'm talking about Styrofoam - which is in fact incorrect - as Styrofoam is the trademark name for the extruded polystyrene (XPS) blue sheet product manufactured by Dow through a chemical foaming process that uses a number of [...]
