LABC Registered Construction Detail
Thermal bridging can account for of heat loss within a home*,
and as properties are being built with better insulation and energy
efficiency targets are getting tougher, the importance of thermal
bridging has increased.
Thermal bridging occurs in junctions where surfaces - such as
around windows - have a much lower insulation value to the
materials surrounding it, for example an external cavity wall. The
obvious solution can be to increase the insulation of that surface,
however, this is often not a viable option due to size disparities
between both surfaces. So the best way of overcoming thermal
bridging is to use construction details to design these cold spots
So, to make the Building Control process easier, Build Aviator
has partnered with the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) to
integrate a library of compliant products into all 368 Registered
With over 15,000 products inputted within the 368 construction
details, the process for choosing compatible solutions to minimise
the heat loss within the building envelope and complying with
current building regulation has been simplified.
As standard, we provide all the relevant RCDs required for your
build as part of our SAP assessment service.
Failing to address thermal bridging could be the difference
between compliance or failure for your project.
Build Aviator is continuously developing additional construction
details for alternative building methods such as timber frame,
acoustics and renovations.
