Detail Library – New Details May 2024

New Details

Something a little different this month. We have been talking about a template of construction build ups for some time now, and it is finally here!

The construction build up template provides a large range of different construction assemblies that can be adjusted to suit all sorts of different domestic and residential projects. 

There are over 100 different build ups within the template including:

  • Masonry external walls
  • Timber frame external walls
  • SIPS and CLT external walls
  • Steel frame external walls
  • Passivhaus external walls
  • Ground floors
  • Intermediate floors
  • Flat roofs
  • Pitched roofs
  • Ceilings
  • Internal walls

Stay tuned to the website as we continue to develop new details every month.
