    I have put wooden noggins in between the RSJ webs. I have attached, at 60cm (or less) spacing underneath the RSJ, two long pieces of timber on each side. This timber forms the bottom frame for the RSJ with 12.5mm single layer of gyproc fireline plasterboard.

    I have used galvanized banding (metal strip) to secure the timber to the noggins. The timber is only tied into the noggins.

    Here's a dropbox link:

    Do I need to further tie in the long timber before plasterboarding around the RSJs?

    Thanks,
