    I’m looking to take out an internal wall. On the attached image the wall marked in green is a block wall and is not load bearing. I would like to take out the section marked in red.

    My question is will the newly formed corners with the blue stud partition walls need supporting? If so what’s the best way to achieve that?

    Take the wall out and then build the partitions to the old wall and secure as per normal methods screw and Rawl plug but use heavy duty screws and Rawl plugs

    Take the full length of the wall out? I was hoping to minimise disruption and the need to rebuild what has just been removed. There are no electrics in the red section but there are in the outer green parts of the wall. Hmm
