Hi all

Bit of a silly one. I never do DIY but I’ve put a large hole in one of the external walls of my flat.

Can anyone please confirm that this is simply double plasterboard and not something else like AIB? My block of flats looks to be built around the 70-80’s.

Looks to be a plaster skin, two plasterboard and then a timber frame with a yellowish insulation (image ), then a reddish brick (which I’m thinking are engineering bricks as the other side is the stairwell.
