Alps Ski Magazine Features ECSUS Design

Updated: Aug 26, 2019



Chalet Build Revolution in the French Alps

Ski resort magazine Edge has featured ECSUS Design and our 'revolutionary' Kingspan SIPs building system in this winter's Tignes - Val d'Isere and Paradiski editions. The magazines will be available to pick up free in resorts all season.

Their article begins:

"Building ski chalets in the Alps is often considered challenging, time-consuming and expensive due to the short construction window outside winter, difficult access and terrain. So when ECSUS Design’s team installed an alpine property in just 5 days it grabbed attention and made the news in both France and England."

It goes on to describe our builds as eco-friendly, cheaper and quicker than traditional methods - easily meeting the French government's new energy standards RT2012.

ECSUS Design founder Steve Downs is quoted as saying:

“Due to the speed of construction, less waste, and the easily-maneuverable panels, building with SIPS can actually be cheaper than using traditional alpine methods. It’s also a much more eco-friendly option for construction – and the in-built insulation can allow you to cut your heating bills to almost zero even in the extreme conditions of the Alps far into the future.”

The article also features a link to our Youtube channel www.youtube.com/c/ecsusdesignltd with time-lapse footage and video diaries.
