This certificate relates to the Abkin`s Simon 4 Building System for buildings up to four storeys high.
The structural system consists of loadbearing and shear wall panels that support concrete floors. External and internal loadbearing walls are factory manufactured with a mild steel channel perimeter frame and mild steel lipped-channel vertical studs and horizontal noggings, with cross-bracing where required. The walls are clad with fibre-cement boards externally and two layers of X-rated gypsum plasterboard internally. The floor slabs are of reinforced concrete supported on Q-deck permanent shuttering spanning between mild steel beams.
Internal division walls are conventional drywall partitioning clad with either fibre-cement or gypsum plasterboard. Foundations, surface bed and roof are conventional.
