To select an internal wall specification with a lower embodied energy than the typical specification. The internal wall specifications matching the actual building design must be entered in the software in all cases.
The design team must select the specification from the drop-down list that most closely resembles the internal walls specified, and enter the thickness, which is a requirement of EDGE. Where there are multiple specifications the predominant specification must be selected.
The following is a list of the specifications included in EDGE. Only the broad wall types are described here; EDGE does not include options on plaster or finishing. The user must always try to select the specification that most closely resembles that of the building design.
Relationship to Other Measures
The specification of internal walls does not affect other EDGE measures but can impact acoustic performance.
The base case assumption is that internal walls are constructed from 200mm common brick plastered on both sides.
