Residential Party Wall

Posted · Add Comment

The sketch provides details for a ‘one hour’ fire rated party wall situated in the roof space between two semi detached houses.

The fire rated party wall was required as part of the proposed second storey additions and alterations. This replaced the existing attic with habitable living space.  The construction meets with both fire and acoustic separation requirements as stipulated in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
