We have finished building the floor structure for an additional story to be added to the Monro Building (next to the Nelson courthouse). 

 

Potius™ Panels were chosen in this case for the speed of installation and their light weight. In this instance the panels are also fire-lined with gib to give them a fire-rating of 60 minutes.
