Construction Joint Guides

BPIC is creating a library of Technical Design Guides and Construction Joint Details that reflects improved building fabric specifications, as well as more stringent buildability and robustness requirements.

Non-Proprietary Construction Joint Guides

If you are a building product manufacturer and interested in creating independent, non-proprietary construction joint details (which are widely applicable and encourage good joint detailing by designers and specifiers) for your sector, we encourage you to contact BPIC or your respective BPIC member organisation.
