WELCOME TO THE WINTER 2017 ISSUE OF YOUR BUILD

It's that time of year when projects can grind to a halt; depending on what stage of the build you are at, poor weather and fewer hours of daylight often mean less progress can be made than you might require, and it can be a frustrating time.

But don't let that dampen your enthusiasm and to help give you some inspiration and keep you focused on your goal, in the Winter issue of Your Build, we've brought together a number of articles and features including case studies, top tips, opinions and advice, plus all the latest products and materials to help you with your project.

In this month's Build Aviator column, Marcus Jefford explains how self-builders can ease the pressure of material estimation and overcome the challenges of calculating build cost. As Marcus explains: "By using an estimating service, self-builders can save time and increase the efficiency of their pricing and budgeting, making it ideal for new-build projects, extensions and conversions." Read his full article on p.07.

This month's Question Time (p.11) sees us sit down with Sarah White of British Gypsum and talk about walls and interiors. As Sarah explains: "We always emphasise the importance of self-builders taking a fabric first approach. By getting involved in the specification process at the early stages, self-builders have the opportunity to design-in materials that exceed the every day basics and meet the requirements of modern homes, both now and in the future."

Elsewhere in this issue, we talk to Kingspan Timber Solutions about how best to achieve an efficient build programme (p.18). As the team explain: "All building projects face a number of common challenges; the choice of 'build packages'; availability of trades; quality control; risk and time. What is often overlooked is the linkage between each of these challenges." As the manufacturer explains, an efficient build can save time and cost.

So read on for all this and so much more...

Enjoy the issue!
