    2 layers 12.5mm standard plasterboard, staggered joints, taped and jointed or skimmed,

    OR

    1 layer 15mm fire line plasterboard, skimmed.

    All boards screwed.

    Integral = part of house therefore assumed to be habitable space above garage.

    Pedant.

    This is an old chestnut. 30 mins fire protection required. This can be achieved with 1 layer of 13mm plasterboard with taped and filled joints.

    I would have said 'integral' merely meant 'attached'.

    Quite possible it has rooms above though.
