A Guide to Internal Wall Insulation
What is internal insulation? Internal insulation is essentially insulation which is applied to the inner face of external walls in a building. It’s usually bonded or screwed to the walls and usually extends from the very bottom of the ground floor all the way up to the eaves level and then carries on and meets up with the roof insulation. It’s there to provide a full internal skin of insulation to keep the interior of the building warm. The post A Guide to Internal Wall Insulation appeared first on Fibres.

So I’m going to answer all the questions that we’ve been asked over the last year or so and hopefully answer everyone’s questions about it.

A Look into the Future of 3d Printed Construction
So, in this episode I’m going to take a bit of a departure from the usual line that I go down in looking at the different issues, and actually look to the future. There’s so many exciting new developments in construction that are taking place, that really have the power to revolutionise how we build buildings and create buildings that really without that sort of technology, we wouldn’t be able to produce otherwise.
