LABC Registered Construction Details

Friday, November 28, 2014

Local Authority Building Control (LABC), Modern Masonry Alliance (MMA), Concrete Block Association and Aircrete have produced a suite of 250 Registered Construction Details designed to minimise heat loss through the weak junction points in a building’s outer envelope.

This initiative offers the construction industry solution-based details to combat thermal bridging.  They are relevant in England Wales and Scotland and help achieve emission targets for SAP 2012 calculations.

The LABC Registered Construction Details (RCDs) are intended for use by architects, plan drawers, developers, housing associations, SAP assessors, local authority building control surveyors, quantity surveyors, clerks of works, contractors and builders and are freely available on the LABC website.
