Build Stronger. Build Faster. Build Better.

element™ llc helps you build stronger, more energy-efficient, air-tight, disaster-resistant residential and commercial buildings.  

With expertise in the Design, Fabrication, and Supply of Structural Insulated Panels and related components, element can take your project from concept to completion. 


element llc provides sustainable, proven building components for residential and commercial construction.

We specialize in designing, fabricating, and supplying strong, state-of-the-art building components and systems, including structural insulated panels (SIPS) and Y-Connect™ steel frameworks.

From concept to finished build, the element team provides the complete solution for more energy-efficient, durable, and healthier custom homes and commercial buildings. Our structural design staff produces CAD graphic layouts while our fabrication department provides timely supply of essential building elements. 

Why build with SIPS?

By providing a systems approach to building and pre-engineered home designs, element greatly reduces field construction times. When construction time savings is calculated with long-term energy savings, the element system becomes even more affordable. 

The resulting super air-tight building envelope provides clean indoor air quality, with better temperature and humidity balance, to create comfortable, healthy environments for living and working. 

Short-term savings: Building with SIPS takes less time and costs 41%* less in labor than traditional stick-frame construction.

Long-term energy efficiencies & cost reductions: Lowers building lifetime operating costs by reducing size of heating & cooling systems and provides fewer maintenance needs.

Sustainability: Minimizes environmental impact and virtually no jobsite waste. Extends life of the building.

Disaster-resistant: Tested high-performance components for proven results.*

Health: Homes built with SIPS have measurably better indoor air quality.

Our vision is simple: Be the best source of products, services, and training for the Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) market.

Hurricane Charley squared off with five of our structures that were directly in its path in 2004. No damage occurred in any of these buildings. FEMA’s follow-up article on the best building practices featured one of those homes. That same year, Hurricane Ivan, an extreme Cat 5 storm, hit one of our large custom homes in Grand Cayman, and the house survived without damage.

We are on a mission to decrease the environmental footprint of the building process.
