Over the past years it has become apparent that organisations are looking for new ways to reduce costs & address sustainability in wall construction, whilst providing a quicker and more flexible installation method. Instawall wants to work with SGBC to educate the construction industry that there are alternatives to the current conventional metal stud wall system, which reduces landfill and provides a re-usable product that does not need to be thrown away. We would like to work with the industry to develop the use of alternative materials in the wall system. It is about the reducing green house gas emissions and if we can show the building industry that we have reduced the need to manufacture new products by using existing available materials which demonstrates innovation, we can play a part in saving the environment. This idea evolved because 100% of all existing metal stud plasterboard walls were being thrown away in the event of a re-fit, because they could not be reused. Several prototypes of the wall were evaluated which could address the main concerns 1. Provide the industry with an alternative wall system for interior construction. 2. Reduce landfill 3. Have a greater life expectancy.
