#28 Componentised Internal Wall Systems for Multi-residential Applications
Internal wall systems in multi-residential applications continue to rely on labour intensive and wasteful on-site processing despite advances in prefabrication and other aspects of multi-res construction.
Described performance requirements for internal walls rely heavily on craftsmanship and supervision – when these fail, significant and costly legacy issues arise.
A different approach is required to the design of internal walls; one which considers modularity rather than customisation, which provides a model for costing legacy and life-time value, and which allows services and performance-based criteria to be integrated in a controlled, off-site environment.
