    Insulated Stud Wall

    Thanks Woody. So you would use 25mm celotex overlay (or equivalent) plus separate plasterboard? (as opposed to 37mm insulated plasterboard). For plasterboard support then maybe also need dwangs at 1.2m to minimise any lack of support from being 25mm away from any studwork at 400 centres?

The MVHR would only run for X minutes when a wet room switch was triggered. This way heat is saved, wet rooms are ventilated, noise...
