Primevue takes pride in being a trailblazer in high-end residential construction. Our commitment to excellence and innovation has led us to embrace the cutting-edge Formance™ SIP system.

Formance™ Structural Insulated Panels are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions in Christchurch, New Zealand. They use Oriented Strand Board (OSB) and locally sourced Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). The basic design concept for Formance™ panels is simple and offers several advantages for constructing walls and roofs. Bonding the foam core to the stiff outer skins creates structural strength through a web-and- flange composite, performing structurally similarly to an I-beam. With the capacity to handle axial, bending, racking, and shear
loads, Formance™ panels not only replace conventional framing but will withstand higher wind and seismic forces while providing the ultimate building envelope for maximum comfort and peace of mind.



Formance™ panels have become the cornerstone of our work, and for good reason. These panels' exceptional quality and sustainable attributes align perfectly with our ethos of delivering superior results
while minimising our environmental impact. These panels provide structural integrity and offer superior insulation, ensuring your home is as energy-efficient as it is luxurious. You can find us on the Formance™

On average, we spend 80% of our lives indoors, so our indoor environment plays a huge role in our health. Shouldn't we ensure this is the best possible environment we can make it? The best indoor climate has clean, fresh air, comfortable (and consistent temperature) and is not subject to extreme temperature highs or lows.

34% of New Zealand's residential energy consumption is used to heat spaces. Yet the average daily indoor temperature in the winter for most New Zealand houses is just 16°C. Combine that with air-leaky homes, and you have a recipe for poor health and respiratory issues.


New Zealand is a signatory to the 2016 Paris Treaty, where 196 world leaders committed their countries to a global goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050. Increasing focus on climate change puts the spotlight on
lowering energy consumption in housing by reducing operational carbon (CO2) and greater consideration for using sustainable and eco-friendly products to build new housing.

At Formance™, sustainability is front of mind - we ensure that the Formance™ system comprises sustainably sourced raw materials. Formance™ Panels provide the solution to a home with substantial reductions in operational carbon.
