    I have an area slabbed with 2' x 2's (4.8 x 4.2M) which I am building a home office on.

    The slabs are on a sound base of type 1 and sharp sand and my plan was to suspend a timber floor frame on bricks around the perimeter of the frame to allow for ventilation under the office and to allow me to get my levels correct.

    Having built the frame there is too much movement across the joists after the noggins have been at the appropriate intervals.

    I need to secure the frame to the slabs at regular intervals and wondered if anyone could recommend a solution?

    Possibly you got too much span between your supports? You said supported at the perimeter, but didn't mention the size of your joist timbers both length and cross section, or if there was any support midway in the spans? It may be you just need to support it more in the centre of the spans, if it is bounce you are referring to.
