Rapid build housing with single leaf masonry construction

This free seminar will demonstrate how single leaf masonry can be used as a modern method of construction for rapid build housing whilst reducing costs compared with other rapid build systems.

Combining the benefits of Aircrete thermal blocks with thin-joint technology and a certified external insulation system, this unique method of construction utilises the simplicity of single leaf construction, whilst enhancing the thermal performance of the build by virtually eliminating thermal bridging, in addition to achieving excellent U-values and airtightness.

With the current demand for cost effective rapid build housing in Ireland, coupled with the new nZEB (near zero energy building) standard which is just around the corner, this modern method of construction might just be the perfect fit for you and your clients.
