Nice photo (albeit in poor light), showing the use of a clip-rail system to install underfloor heating pipes over a cavity drainage damp proof membrane prior to screed application, on this remedial project addressing a problem of external tanking failure. The clip-rail detail is important since it negates any requirement to fix through and therefore puncture the DPM.
This photo also illustrates the use of treated timber battens fixed and squared up ready to accept dry linings. While many form independent studs which is quicker (cheaper), this typically loses excessive space while battens are extremely sturdy and maximise the size of the finished room.

"I can highly recommend Trace. I rang to get a damp survey booked in on a property we were looking to buy. Lewis was very helpful over a couple of phone calls, even ringing back on a day off! Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."
“Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
