Insulated Construction in Buildings

That it is desirable in modern buildings to secure the maximum insulation against the vagaries of the weather, the transmission of vibration and noise and the loss of heat, has long since been accepted, but few realise the economic necessity of providing such insulation. The use of the minimum of material in wall panels in framed buildings necessitates the application of the latest principles of insulated construction, and the following general notes, together with data on typical details, should be of assistance to the designer.
