New Details

This month is all about updates on the Detail Library! We have spent many months preparing for the new building regulations changes which go live this June. So, over the last few days we have been uploading all of our updated details to the library.

We have updated over 100 of our core details!

In addition we have a couple of new details to add to the mix.

The main changes you will see are increases in insulation levels, along with other minor tweaks and improvements. 

The main changes include the following categories:

  • Foundation and Floors

  • Timber frame walls (including windows and doors)
  • Pitched and Flat roofs
  • Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF)
