Project description

provide two major elements of construction for task 2 and describe the construction process. For example, lets say you have a ventilated concrete raft or ground floor slab construction. Explain the reason for floating the slab, how the slab is supported and all the other elements that make it work successfully like insulation, clearance from soil, vent holes etc and how it helps in achieving safety (structural) and comfort. Second example may be cavity insulated brick wall or roof trusses with loft insulation etc. Refer to building regs. LOCATE THE SECTION PLANE THAT BEST SUITS YOUR DESIGN. You are free to produce any number of drawings including sections.
