    Beginning wall cladding and bracing

    Before we could fix any RAB board to the wall frames we needed to check that the wall was square and had not grown due to creeping measurements as we constructed it. Once we had check these we were able to apply RAB board to the exterior face of the walls in place of standard building paper. All the vertical joints had to be taped and horizontal ones flashed to ensure a weather seal was achieved. After this we were able to start fixing cavity battens for our two types of claddings (the steel profile on the east and west and shadow clad ply on the north and south). In addition to this we fixed anchors to the bracing walls and beam supports to provide additional bracing to the structure.
