Supervisor from IBS company will ensure that the barriers or scaffolding used in order to comply safe work practice are installed in construction so no damage or overload wall components will occur during construction.These kind of additional should be referred back to the architect/designer to ensure and archieve good performance of wall frames and roof since wind load is one of important factor in design.Unload and unpack all the panels and put them near required posiions to avoid missplaced .3 WALL FRAME INSTALLATION Step 1 : Identify each panel frames location using ENDUROCADD which is software generated Panel Layout supplied by manufacturer. Measure and check the diagonals of marked wall positions.1 PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION There are a few steps before commencing construcrion of the wall: We have to check the support of the structure particular with the plan dimensions . 3.1.2 WALL FRAME SETOUT By lifting any frames into a right place .1.Additional loading such as mechanical ventilation system like Air-Condition.2 SAFETY Figure 2.It handled . Any damaged parts must be reported in wall frames inspection to make sure a correct rectification.In our site they apply the ENDUROWALL system for standard domestic residental for PR1MA @ SG.Correct design wind loads will tie Usually . we have to mark out the frame locations on the floor and surveyor will mark and set the offset of frames location which supplied Wall Framing Layout as a reference.0 ENDUROWALL FRAME & CONSTRUCTION 3.

Step 3 : Stand the wall frame on exact location points. Figure 3.By doing this .Joints are made by screwing the adjacent studs at bottom and mid points.Make sure all the lines are square and right into position before proceeding the construction. they trying to fit the interior walls after perimeter of project finished. mark the position of walls on the slab or floor using chalk/pencil line. Step 4 : Stand the next wall section in right position and fix it to the first section using 1016x16mm hex and head screw. Figure 3.All the number for wall assigned by ENDUROCADD software to help identify location.Use a piece of chanel to secure the wall .However we have to check the drawings as this may be vary. .Complete each junction before prodeeding to next frame panel to avoid confusion.Normally external wall are detailed around 150mm from the face of the brick with 75mm cavity with studs.
