The Rapidbuild Process
RapidBuild established in North Wales has been supplying a unique building system to the construction and building trade throughout the UK since 2012.
RapidBuild 15 step process.
The RapidBuild system is a breakthrough innovation in house building. Using all materials from traditional masonry construction, the system simply allows builders to construct houses in a different way, resulting in a considerably faster build and higher quality finish, with all the economic benefits that accrue from the increased productivity.

The scaffolding is erected to RapidBuild technical drawings and specification.
The Ring Beam is laid around the inner leaf on top of the brickwork footing which consists of a single course of bricks at DPC level.
The Concrete or Thermal Blocks are built to joist height, the joists laid, a ring beam laid above joists and built to wall plate. Tie wires are installed at 900x450mm centres.
The RapidBuild Components are fitted to the scaffolding and tied into the inner wall structure. This gives total stability to the internal structure
The Cavity Closers are installed and tied into the blockwork allowing additional strength to fit the window into the internal skin.
Poro-Cav Lintel features a unique ‘thermal break plate’ that aids the thermal performance of the wall. The inner leaf is supported through a standard box lintel whilst the outer leaf support comes from the uniquely designed outer lintel.
The Ring Beam of coursing brick is laid above the joists as an additional Ring Beam to give extra stability and an accurate level to build the 3rd and 4th lift to wall plate.
Roof Trusses are installed once the blockwork reaches wall plate and the wall plate is fitted.
Fascias and Soffits
The Fascias, Soffit Boards and Barge Boards are fitted once the roof trusses have been fully installed. The soffits will be fitted leaving a 25mm gap to ensure the outer bricks can be laid up to them.
The felt membrane and batten is laid on the roof once the trusses have been fully installed to ensure a waterproof layer.
The Window installation takes place once the blockwork, roof trusses and felt and batten have been completed.
The Cavity Insulation is fitted to the blockwork with ease and ensures no mortar droppings are behind the panels.
The breathable Membrane is fitted to the insulation with a spray adhesive to ensure an extremely high performance for air testing and a total waterproof barrier
The Roof Tiles are installed once the trusses have been installed, felt & battened, fascias, soffits and bargeboards fitted.
Face Bricks & Internal Trades
The face bricks are built following the line of the inner blockwork. The facing bricks can be laid when all internal trades are taking place allowing for a faster and better quality build. As the inner blockwork skin has been laid the outer facing bricks will require a much lower skilled brick layer as they have a building line to work to.
