The Rapidwall Building System is for single- and multi- storey (up to ten storeys) buildings. The multi- storey buildings are designed and erected under the control of a registered competent professional engineer who will ensure the structural integrity of the entire building.

For single- storey buildings foundation are raft foundations, cast on a damp-proof membrane in all cases designed by a professional engineer. The wall panels are constructed of ribbed and hollow core panels which are factory produced. Wall panel consists of water resistant gypsum plaster with water proofing additives reinforced with chopped fibreglass.

Roof construction is conventional timber or light gauge structural steel roof trusses with light- or heavy-weight cladding. Insulated ceilings are always installed.

Window and door frames are fixed on site into openings after the installation of the wall panel and secured to the steel closures with the screws fixed to the wall panels.

All other aspects of construction are conventional.
