Stud partition wall at 90 degrees to exposed beams


Postby space refurbs » Fri Apr 11, 2008 5:49 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have any experience of building a drywall partition at right angles to ceiling joists, when the exposed ceiling beams have to be retained (as a condition of listed building consent).

It will need to be part E compliant and I'd prefer to use steel framing.

I'm assuming I can just screw the u-channel head track to the upstairs sub floor between the joists, use a piece of c-stud on the vertical sides of the joists and a small piece of u-channel on the underside of the joists to get a sort of 'wraparound' effect?

Simply Build It

Hi
I would just build the partition wall as if the bottom of the exposed beams are the ceiling. then fix a c section part inbetween the exposed beams so it still suports all the outer edges of the plasterboard.
