Internal wall systems in multi-residential continue to rely on labour intensive and wasteful on-site processing despite advances in prefabrication in other aspects of multi-res construction. Described performance requirements for internal walls rely heavily on craftsmanship and supervision - when these fail, significant and costly legacy issues arise. A different approach is required to the design of internal walls – one which considers modularity rather than customisation, which provides a model for costing legacy and life-time value, and one which allows services and performance based criteria to be integrated in a controlled, off-site environment.
