4) The work site must be dirty, messy, filled with bricks, water, cement, sand, etc. Even if it is at condo or on the 2nd floor, it is inconvenient.

 

In the past, we were often used to brick walls to create partition walls.

  • The brick manufacturing process uses for fertile soil as its primary raw materials and thus destroys the arable land.
  • The process consumes high amount of fuel like and thus has very high embodied energy and is a non-standardized process.
  • Brick quality differs in dimensions, strength, weight and finishing.
  • Constructing wall with bricks and blocks is time consuming, messy and it requires ample amount of water for curing.

Worldwide brick-based construction has become obsolete and gypsum plasterboard dry walls have become the choice of leading architects and developers "Gyproc® drywall technology" is a revolutionary solution that perfectly suits the development base of the construction industry.

Plaster joints and screw heads.

 Starting from the bottom of the column, the 1st layer of brick row is about 1.5-2 centimeter thickness. Alternating in every row, with every layer of mortar to be approximately 1.5-2 centimeter thickness.
  7

Plaster the joints as 2nd layer.

 Check the level along the plane and plumb every 3-5 layers with the stringed tendons and water level measurement for the levelness and strength.
 8  Plaster the 3rd layer joint and sand it with sandpaper. After that, painting or any decoration is followed.
